Every now and then it’s fun to explore somewhere else. We headed south to Seattle this summer and found some fun rides.
1. Elliott Bay Trail –
Right from our hotel in the city center, we rode down a S T E E P hill towards the waterfront and picked up the paved pathway and headed north. At Broad Street the pathway officially becomes the Elliott Bay Trail. Take a detour through the Sculpture Garden – bikes are allowed and meander through the art. For a surprising twist – head to the southwest corner of the garden to a building that looks like a subway station and (hopefully it is open) go inside and see the tree garden where nothing was planted, it’s what the forest does with a fallen tree !
The trail continues through the Port lands … and you can choose to head east towards Magnolia and Discovery Park or continue along the shoreline and visit Smith Cove Park with views to the cruise ship dock. And a little further along is the Elliott Bay Marina — a good place for a bite to eat.
