lake union 2We love our neighborhood and being in Pike Place Market, but it’s fun to get out and enjoy another great water view in Seattle.  Lake Union is located just 10 minutes from Inn at the Market and offers more than just a beautiful view.  Argosy Cruises does a wonderful Lakes Cruise that takes you from Lake Union into Lake Washington.  Ride the Ducks is a fun way to explore Seattle where you get to see the sites on land, and then a fun ride on Lake Union on their amphibious buses!  If you’re looking for a little adventure, at the Northwest Outdoor Center you can rent kayaks or canoes and explore the Lake while getting in a work out.  A favorite spot for locals is Gas Works Park, a great picnic/play area with some industrial charm.  If you’re looking for dining in the area, the South Lake Union neighborhood has some great places to eat.  Click here for more info including a great interactive map of the area.

Stop by our Front Desk on your next visit for more information on this beautiful gem in our city!
