You can kick off your morning with a serene ride around the Puget Sound.
Because Seattle is situated between the Puget Sound and Lake Washington, it's no surprise why the majority of locals spend so much time on the water. Not only is this a great gateway for serenity — especially with the gorgeous Mount Rainier in the background — but it's also the perfect excuse to escape the buzzing city center.
Looking to get on the water yourself? Well, you're in luck! From ferries to sailboats, there are plenty of options for rides taking place all throughout the day. You can check out the daily schedule here. And although the snow-capped mountain can be quite captivating once you start gliding, don't forget to look back toward the city, as a breathtaking view of the skyline will be waiting to grab your attention.
