Seattle is the perfect urban hub for outdoor enthusiasts. With mountains on all sides, hiking and climbing options are limitless. A thirty minute drive will get you to the closest foothills and larger mountain ranges are worth an extra two hour drive. In winter, skiing can be accessed within an hour. Even within the city there are plenty of opportunities for seeking out nature with over 400 parks to explore!
This nature-lover’s paradise is also surrounded by water. Lakes and canals within the city offer calm waters for sports like rowing and stand up paddle boarding. Seattle sits on the Puget Sound, which provides even more options for water activities such as sailing, kayaking, and even scuba diving. Ferries frequent the water, moving between islands and providing transportation to the Olympic Peninsula, home of spectacular beaches and Washington’s very own rainforest.
