Enjoying Nature in Pioneer Square

During the long, cold winter, we take refuge in the bars and restaurants that exist within an umbrella’s length of Stadium Place.

But now spring is here. It’s time to climb out from our warm, safe blankets and take a look at some of the nature nestled into our little concrete jungle.

Within a short walk of Stadium Place, is Waterfront Park. Comprising the area from Pier 57 to Pier 59, this park provides excellent chances to fill your Instagram account with photos of Puget Sound, birds, seals, islands and, even the Olympic Mountains. If you forget your binoculars, four coin-operated telescopes are available for your convenience. Once you are done enjoying the nature view, use the benches or picnic tables to enjoy lunch in the shade of the trees. Or just relax and lay on the grass to take in the sunshine.

But Maybe you are one who likes to be a little more “one with nature.” There’s almost no better way to spend a Seattle evening than cruising around on a sailboat in the middle of Puget Sound.

Emerald City Charters provides 2 voyages a day. Enjoy the 1.5 hourr cruise starting at 4pm for just $33 per person. Or take the longer 2.5 hour sunset cruise that launches at 6:30 for $49 per person. Feel the wind in your hair, smell the crisp sea air, and bring along your own bottle of wine to make the tour that much more lovely.
