SeaTac, Washington: Lakeside Parks at the Intersection of Two Great Cities
SeaTac takes its name from two of its more-famous neighbors: Seattle to the north and Tacoma to the south. Yet this relatively young community (the city was incorporated in 1990) packs personal identity into its 10 square miles. You’ll find lots of things to do outside, including Angle Lake Park, where visitors fish, boat, and sprawl out picnics. Other parklands include the 165-acre North SeaTac Park, home to a BMX track. Of course, visitors are going to want to make the short trip into Seattle at some point and check out all of the city’s world-class attractions.
Street performances, flowers, and fresh-caught fish find a common home at Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Founded in 1907, this market is where both sightseers and locals shop for fresh seafood, meat, and produce. The original Starbucks coffeehouse has operated out of Pike Place since the 1970s. You can stop here for a pick-me-up before taking the half-mile walk to Seattle Central Library. Whether you love books or architecture or both, this futuristic-looking library is worth a visit. The 11-story glass-and-steel structure consists almost entirely of diamond-shaped windows arranged to look like a geometric net. The otherworldly interior is a playground for book lovers. Be sure to check out the library’s “living room” in the morning, when sunlight creates a kaleidoscopic shadow on the floor.
Like the library, the nearby Seattle Art Museum is full of spectacles, starting with its collection of “exploding” white Ford Tauruses suspended from the lobby ceiling. Exhibits range from Renaissance-era European art to Korean and Japanese panels.
