Easy access to Pike Place Market via the #5 bus, #28 bus, or driving via the "back" way, 15th Ave NW turns into Elliott ave which take you right downtown. 10 minute drive tops.
Around 5 blocks from the house, a very easy walk even with kids in tow.
Their Cuban pork shoulder sandwich is the best I have ever had, amazing. Cash only, always a line, but it moves fast and well worth the wait.
Watch the ships come and go from the Puget Sound, into the locks, and on to Lake Washington. There is also a great fish ladder that is active with Salmon much of the year.
A great family beach. Picnic areas, fire pits, nice safe beach.
Very nice American-style breakfast, very local atmosphere, best eggs any style anywhere.
La Carta de Oaxaca (wa ha ka), is simply the best Mexican food you will ever eat. Always busy, worth the wait. Everything is incredible. La Isla is the best Puerto Rican food in town, heavy on the garlic, great Rum Punches.
