Out on the Water

Recommended for : Outdoor & Adventure
1
Check in at Hotel Max and pop on your walking shoes - if they're not on already. 
2
Bop over to Pike Place Market, where you can buy some fresh produce and ingredients for a sack lunch. Lean over the railing at Victor Steinbrueck Park and soak in views of the Olympic Mountains and Bainbridge Island. 
3
Head Southwest to the waterfront and catch a water taxi for a 15-minute cruise across Elliot Bay to West Seattle - one of Seattle's queerest neighborhoods. 
4
Once successfully moored, take a stroll along the boardwalk until you reach Alki Kayak Tours. Sign up for the soonest tour, grab a kayak, and get to know some of the seals and other Puget Sound wildlife as you paddle to Lincoln Park Beach.
5
Wander across the beach, shimmy up a dirt path, and make your way to Lincoln Park's old growth forests and fields. Now's the perfect time to find a sunny spot and break out that picnic lunch you packed.
6
After returning your kayak, slip off your shoes, continue west down the boardwalk to the very end and take in one of the PNW's famous sunsets.
7
Treat yourself to a margarita and some fish tacos at El Chupacabra, or, for a locally sourced dining experience, indulge in a glass of wine and some authentic Italian at La Rustica.
8
After dinner, hop the bus or a scenic water taxi ride back to your hotel.
