AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Seattle’s fortunes revolve around the deep-water harbor of Elliott Bay. Where Gold Rush—era ships once tied up to wooden wharves, today there are immense cruise ships. Strolling the city’s waterfront promenade, you’ll encounter ferries and tour boats and watch massive container vessels and tugs churn past. The wharves lining the inner harbor now hold import and souvenir shops, seafood restaurants and attractions such as the Seattle Aquarium (Pier 59) and the Seattle Waterfront Arcade and Carousel (Pier 57). At the north end, Myrtle Edwards Park offers a broad swath of lawn, beach access and a bike trail. And we're partial to leisurely strolls in the city’s new outdoor Olympic Sculpture Park next door.
