A few great outdoor activities include the Seattle Waterfront, The Pike Place Market, Seattle Aquarium, Waterfront Park, Hiram J. Chittenden Locks, and of course the Washington State Ferries that can take you over to Vashon Island, Bainbridge and up North to the San Juan’s. When you visit us at Olympic View Cottage in Seattle, WA we will be more than happy to help you plan your days and make the most of your summer in Seattle.
A fascinating way to spend the afternoon this summer in Seattle is to visit the Hiram J. Chittenden Locks and watch the boats navigate the locks. This can entertain you for hours. But at Hiram Chittenden Locks there is so much more to see. The amazing climbing fish, the painstakingly tended botanical gardens, and the best grassy hills in town for kids to roll down. There is also lots of prime picnic spots where you can munch as you watch the boats going by. Only a 25 minute drive from Olympic View Bed and Breakfast Cottage in Seattle and one of our guests most visited sites.
