Cool beach for the city

Cool place to visit because it's a beach in the city. Lots of places to eat and drink along the way.

Head to West Seattle for a afternoon/evening. The restaurants are wonderful. The view from Alki beach is breathtaking. You can take a ferry from downtown Seattle over to West Seattle. Otherwise its a short Uber ride.

Place to go in winter or in summer...all year round activities. Summer are great as you can play volleyball and have a bonfire with friends. Just a great place with great food around.

From what I understand, there is an east side and west side of Alki Beach. The west side includes the lighthouse and the sandy beach. A nice place for sunset photos. The east side, by Seacrest Park, offers a spectacular view of the Seattle Skyline....More

We took a water taxi and rented bikes at that same spot. The ride to the Alki beach trail was short and safe :)
