Tour: Explore beach on your own
Limit: 50 people
Picture a perfect summer day, and chances are your thoughts will take you to Alki Beach Park, a long beach strip that runs from Alki Point to Duwamish Head on Elliott Bay. It's a great spot for a 2.5 mile walk any time of year, and in the summer draws joggers, rollerbladers, volleyball players, beachcombers, sunbathers, bicyclists and strollers out to enjoy the sun.
The north end of the beach is protected by a bulkhead, and flanked by cottages. The whole beach offers spectacular views of Puget Sound, the
Olympic Mountains, and the flotilla of ferries, sailboats, steamships and other craft that ply Puget Sound waters.
Alki has several restaurants from which to choose-from the oldest fast food place in Seattle to the best food truck in America.
