Owner description: Walking along the Seattle Waterfront is a perfect way to soak up some Northwest atmosphere.  Take in views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains while exploring Olympic Sculpture Park, the Seattle Aquarium, shops, and restaurants like Ivar’s, a local landmark, where you can watch the ferries load and depart while you eat.

“Time for yourself or fun with friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I think it's a beautiful place for a walk, whether one would want some solitary time or want to hang around, walk and have fun with friends. There are some very good places to eat as well and range from cheapest to fancy stuff. There's a good Thai restaurant right on the waterfront (i forget the name though) that's highly recommended. Good place for looking out into the sea and some photography depending on the weather.

“Take your time but enjoy it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The Waterfront has a little of everything, so take the time to find your favorite slice. The Aquarium, the restaurants, the park space, the little funky shops...and the chance to see some working waterfront, too.

“Love the walk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I enjoyed walking around and looking in the shops, eating in the restaurants and maybe jumping onto an Argosy boat tour. Always a very relaxing place to wander.

“Lovely strolling and people watching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Great for locals like us and for tourists alike! Screaming seagulls just wait for some unlucky person to leave their food out. Great to picnic with family and friends!
