"You MUST ride on a ferry. ..." Seattle Things to Do Tip by dzni

Seattle Things to Do: 956 reviews and 1,719 photos

You MUST ride on a ferry. They aren't terribly expensive, and it's almost like a little cruise on Puget Sound. Anyway, you can take them from downtown, Fauntleroy to the south, and from Edmonds to the north. There are other places too, some going to Canada and others going through the San Juan Islands. Anyway, take one across the sound to the Olympic Penninsula (and then do some more exploring over there!!). It's a trat... stand on the front of the ferry and just let the fierce wind blow at your face as you look out across the Sound. I love it! BRING A JACKET! Even in summer, the temperature was pretty cool out on the Sound, especially with the wind.
