Pike Place Market

No trip to Seattle is complete without a jaunt through Pike Place Market. Sample piroshkies from Piroshky Piroshky and grab a milkshake from Shug’s Soda Fountain before heading up to the verdant garden rooftop for sweeping views and breathing room away from the downstairs crowds.

Go for a Jog

Enjoy one of the city’s most gorgeous public recreation areas by taking a jog around Discovery Park’s 2.8 mile trail. Wide-open trails, lush flora, and iconic views of Puget Sound make this the perfect spot for an evening run.

Kayak

Rent a sea kayak to enjoy Seattle’s abundant bodies of water and test your sea legs pre-cruise. Start at Lake Washington, then paddle through the Montlake Cut and dozens of funky floating homes until you get to Portage Bay and Lake Union. From there, if you’re feeling up to it, you can push past open gates into salty Puget Sound.
