Explore a rapidly growing part of Seattle with its forest of yellow building cranes, throngs of Amazon employees, distinctive urban design elements, and the calm of Lake Union.

This tour will begin with a ride on the South Lake Union Streetcar to Lake Union, passing through the newest buildings in Seattle and through the Denny Regrade where Denny Hill was removed in the early 1900s. This has been an area of great change over the past 100 years.

Once at Lake Union Park, you will disembark and be able to enjoy the morning over Lake Union at the site of the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) and the Center for Wooden Boats. From this vantage point, you will be able to see Gas Works Park across the water and the world-renowned Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center  to the East.

From there, the walk continues south towards the Cascade P-Patch and the flagship location of REI, where you will find the company's famed forest and waterfall. The return route will pass by Cornish College of the Arts, the visual and performing arts college of Seattle.

Total walking distance is approximately 1.75 - 2 miles.
