Elliott Bay Waterfront

One of Seattle’s most distinguishing features is its working waterfront. It is the core of Seattle’s thriving maritime community and is chock full of the sights, shore-bird cries, and briny air of a seaport metropolis. It’s the place to catch ferries to Bainbridge Island or the Kitsap Peninsula, or view sea life at the Seattle Aquarium. The piers are tourist central, replete with restaurants and bars, import shops, and harbor tours. On the southern end of the bay, acres of container yards border the city’s gritty but fascinating industrial district.
