Fun for singles and family- over 1000 beers local and from the world over, indoor and outdoor seating, food trucks rotate daily and there is even an ice cream counter for kids! If the food truck doesn't suit you or your kids, they have hot dogs, brats, pretzels and chips and snacks inside every day. Dog friendly too, a local must-go!

Parks & Nature
Beautiful place, people come here just to watch the sunset over the Olympic Mountains. I proposed to my husband there spontaneously- that is how romantic the place can be! Full Sound and Olympic Mountain views. There is a broad man made sandy beach (seattle has only one other sand beach, Alki in West Seattle), Little Coney, a great fish and chips style shack with ice cream, open grills, picnic structures, volley ball nets, soccer field, bonfires areas- and a great playground for kids with brand new equipment. You can find peace and quiet on one end, parties on the other.

This park has fantastic views, trails, and a stairway down to expansive typical pacific northwest beach- with 180 degree views of the Olympic Mountains and the Puget Sound. At certain times of year you can actually see the salmon run upstream in the park! If you have kids, there is a good playground with structures for all ages. Picnic sites/tables/grills available.

This is a very unique park. There are hiking trails that cover all kinds of washington state in one 3 mile loop: dark green forest, grassy fields with blackberries and wild animals, down to more woods, down to a beach and historic lighthouse- you could see seals, sea lions, puffins, Seattlelites even! Staggering views of Mt. Rainier and the Olympics from the beach, it is a lovely beach. My husband and I chose that spot to get hitched! On the way back, another opportunity for wooded trail hiking, with some elevation gain, but not so challenging that small kids couldn't do it- it can also be bypassed. Just an amazing park.

I'm not as big on their coffee as I am their sweet and savory pastry- it is the best pastry I've had, better than any I've had in Europe. A destination for sure. You'll see the line out the door.

Delicious Seattle restaurant chain- all local organic ingredients, really yummy. Breakfast is big- many menu items include a trip to the "breakfast bar" in addition to what you've ordered- bowls piled high with fresh local berries, fruit, nuts, giant bowls of fresh whipped cream and butter, hot maple syrup...need I say more?

Most budget friendly grocery store near us- Grocery Outlet is closer, but that is not a full grocery store, and filled with off brands- items that didn't make it off the shelves in other stores. Go to Safeway instead!
