Head to Alki Beach to enjoy the long stretch of sand and view of downtown.

In Seattle, this is as close as you can get to living in beach paradise. Well into the 20th century, Alki was reachable from most of Seattle only by boat. Alki today is reminiscent of a Pacific Northwest beach town, with a mix of mid-century bungalows, medium-rise waterfront apartment houses, more expensive condo with amazing Puget Sound view, waterfront businesses, a thin beach, and a bike/foot trail running several miles along the water.
