     In the brief time since opening in 1994, the Bellevue Botanical Garden has become a major center for gardening activity.  A number of gardening and horticultural groups contribute volunteer hours and funding to make it grow.  Thousands of visitors from the local area and around the world have enjoyed its beauty.

     The new Ravine Garden Experience will take visitors along a pedestrian trail through a second-growth forest and a steep-sided ravine in the southeast corner of the Bellevue Botanical Garden, which is located within the larger “Cascadia Experience”. The project entails construction of a 150-foot long, five-foot wide pedestrian suspension bridge made predominantly of steel which will span the ravine and allow visitors close proximity and intimate views of the plants, wildlife and forest canopy into and around the ravine.

Pike Place is known for its exciting sights, sounds, and aromas. The Pike Place Market began on August 17, 1907. A century after its founding, the Market remains a vital part of Seattle's social and economic fabric. Having had its 100th Anniversary, the Pike Place Market is indeed one of the greatest public markets in the world. The nine-acre historic district hosts an estimated nine million visitors every year who come to experience a feast for the senses and shop for an incredible diversity of products. Helping make up the Market experience are local farmers, craftspeople, businesspeople, and those crazy fish throwers. There will be time to shop and explore this fascinating area on your own.

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.
