“Training for a 5K? Run around the lake. Training for a tri? Swim in the lake and then run around it. Want to sit? The grass and trees are lovely. Kids need to get their wiggles out? There is a playground, wading pool, and a swimming beach.”

Sculpture Garden
“Make this park the starting point for walking along the waterfront (in either direction). Stunning views and kitschy waterfront activities (The Great Wheel, Ye Old Curiosity Shop). Fish and chips at Ivars is great for lunch (sit outside). For sit down touristy restaurant I recommend Anthony's Bell Street Diner. It's cheaper than the other tourist spots and more relaxed. ”

Beach
“Iconic beach in West Seattle with panoramic views of the city and the Olympic range. Sandy beaches in this spot with Volleyball nets and a great selection of restaurants and beach bars just across the street. Get a fire pit going with an evening picnic to get the real PNW look and feel. ”

Park
“Volunteer Park is a large rolling wooded park nestled next to some of the most gorgeous historic homes in Capitol Hill! Bring a blanket and take a nap in the fields with a variety of Seattleites, read a book under a tree, check out the Volunteer Park Conservatory with an impressive variety of plants and flowers (weird hours check website), run or pace yourself to the top of the water tower for 360 views of the city and if you get lucky you can run across weekend events of all kinds on the outdoor stage (or check the website ahead of time if your're not feeling super lucky :). We've come across Shakespeare plays, latin dance performances and multicultural fairs just by chance! ”
