Our hotel was on the Waterfront. It stretches quite a length with shops, restaurants & activities to keep you busy. Besides shopping & eating the Great Wheel and the Ferries are along this street. Lots of cyclists & runners, as well.

Going to the waterfront here is a MUST, you could take one of the ferries on the bay, you could go to the Seattle Wheel, or eat from cheap/good food to expensive and good sea food as well ! Sunset is great !

Loved walking the Seattle water front from the stadiums up past Pike Place. So much to see and do, with plenty of choices for food and drink. A great way of seeing the city and safe if not a little busy in some areas.

Walking along the waterfront is a bit difficult these days, as there is so much construction going on that impedes pedestrians.
