Wa­ter­front

Where Seattle - - Where Now -

Seat­tle’s wa­ter­front is a bustling area with plenty of places to ex­plore, and on a sum­mery Seat­tle day, it’s the per­fect spot to visit. Dine along the wa­ter, stroll through parks and watch wildlife and boats on El­liott Bay. It’s here that you’ll find the Olympic Sculp­ture Park (www.seat­tleart­mu­seum.org. 2901 Western Ave.), a free out­door space with art and places to sit down and en­joy the view. The park also has a full events sched­ule dur­ing sum­mer months—visit the web­site for a cal­en­dar. The Seat­tle Aquar­ium (www.seat­tleaquar­ium.org. 1483 Alaskan Way) is also here—visit for a closer look at the sea life of Puget Sound and be­yond. The Seat­tle Great Wheel (www.seat­tle­greatwheel.com. 1301

Alaskan Way) looms up from Pier 57, ex­tend­ing over the wa­ter. With en­closed gon­do­las, it’s a com­fort­able ride no mat­ter the weather. Dine on fresh seafood at a va­ri­ety of restau­rants, from a no-uten­sils-re­quired feast at The Crab Pot (www.the­crabpot­seat­tle.com. 1301 Alaskan Way) to fish and chips at Ivar’s Fish Bar (www.ivars.com. 1001 Alaskan Way). On the same pier as Ivar’s, Ye Olde Cu­rios­ity Shop (www.yeold­e­cu­rios­i­tyshop.com. 1001 Alaskan Way) is full of od­di­ties and sou­venirs.
