Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Golden Gardens:

"Golden Gardens Park and Alki for beaches"  See More

"Golden Gardens offers forested walks as well as a sandy beach and a nearby marina."  See More

"Pick up a sandwich at Paseo Caribbean Restaurant and eat it at Fremont Brewing Company Visit Golden Gardens at sunset, bring some firewood."  See More

"In Seattle, you can get a bit of wilderness too -- check out Golden Gardens or Discovery Park, both of which offer opportunities to explore outdoors but are within reach of the urban setting."  See More

"Outdoors: Do Discovery Park, Golden Gardens (Ballard Neighborhood), Alki Beach (West Seattle), or the garden at Seattle Art Museum."  See More

"Visit Golden Gardens or Discovery Park to do some urban exploration."  See More

"If you love the outdoors, you could go for a run/hike in Discovery Park or Golden Gardens, which are both within striking distance to Ballard Neighborhood."  See More

"Golden Gardens for a beach with a view of mountains on a clear day."  See More

"Golden Gardens or Ray's Cafe for beautiful sunsets with the Olympic mountains across Puget Sound"  See More

"Try Golden Gardens for another great view, this time of the Olympic mountains, which makes it a real highlight at sunset."  See More

"If you're going up that-a-way, the Ballard Locks can be a neat visit, with a botanical garden area and the salmon ladder exhibit (though depending on the season, you may not see any fish), and there's nearby Golden Gardens beach, if you want to walk in the sand and on a clear day see the Olympic Mountains (very crowded on a nice day)."  See More

"congrats!) First, go in the earliest part of autumn that you can. It doesn't get crazy cloudy/drizzly 'till later in the fall (usually) but no harm in stacking the deck. The NW colors aren't very dramatic compared to the east coast and they often don't show up until the nasty weather does. Where to stay If you're going to splurge, the Edgewater Hotel is a great location and literally hangs over the water. It's walkable to the Olympic Sculpture Park and Pike Place Market. There are also a few really nice hotels on 5th/6th... But those can be a bit of a hike up the hill from Pike Place Market. AirBnB might be worth a look too (but you should have a guide-- downtown neighborhoods are safe but certain ones can be dirty/noisy). Landscapes For otherworldly northwestern rainforest feel right in the city, you can't beat Schmitz Preserve Park in West Seattle. UW sends botany students here-- it's the closest example of old-growth in Seattle. You could take the water taxi over to West Seattle ($3.50). On the other side is a Hawaiian/Korean fusion place that is awesome ( >"  See More
