The best place to see Seattle in the whole is from Alki Beach! What more do you need to know? It is also the hop off point for the passenger only ferry to Seattle. Never a bad time to see it!

Loved the birds around. Plenty of good places to eat around. Good place to walk, go with family. Have seen cleaner beaches though in India.

Alki beach is located in West Seattle. The beach is not too crowded and usually very peaceful. There are also some nice little eateries towards the end of the beach. The view of downtown Seattle from here is one of the best.

My boyfriend and I have walked our dogs randomly around midnight. We saw quite a bit of people walking around. But like anywhere I would watch for safety. When it gets warmer I expect there will be even more traffic.
