Minutes away from Alki Beach and California Drive – the heart and pulse of West Seattle – Seattle Sober Living finds its home in a quiet nook with proximity to social activities, job opportunities, and the inspiring landscape of the Pacific Northwest.
In the years following 1851, when settlers first landed in present-day West Seattle, many eventually left for the more promising harbor of Elliott Bay. Those that remained built the foundation of the colorful, intimate community of West Seattle. Now, this neighborhood is chock-full of quiet coffee shops, a variety of cuisine, quirky venues, spacious parks, and seemingly endless beachside fun – all with the pristine backdrop of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. We’ve picked just a few places for you to check out, but encourage you to never stop exploring this neighborhood’s potential as a place of community and inspiration.
This family-oriented space includes playing fields, a playground, an outdoor pool, and picnic areas with a wide-open view of the Sound. During the summers, it’s a popular venue for picnic lunches and outdoor productions, like Shakespeare in the Park. If you’re seeking solitude, don’t count it out – the newly maintained Lincoln Park trails are perfect for running as well as casual strolls.
Easy Street Records
For either used vinyl or recent releases, a touch of history, and maybe a shot of espresso, visit Easy Street Records in the West Seattle Junction. This little block is full of quirky shops and restaurants as well as convenient grocery, but for many, Easy Street is the crown jewel. What other record store also serves espresso and brunch? If you’re looking for a classic diner breakfast, be sure to head over early – it’s a popular tourist spot for good reason! If you’re a vintage music fan, stay tuned for their legendary sidewalk sales, and “secret” live shows in-store.
Alki Beach Lighthouse
Inside this historic building – automated, but still maintained by the U. S. Coast Guard – you’ll find old photos, charts, and instruments that display a bit of Seattle’s nautical roots. Visit Seattle Travel for more information, operating hours and a helpful list of other sights, flavors, and opportunities Alki Beach Park has to offer.
