Alki Beach Park is a popular summertime destination for bladers, joggers, and cyclists. The main strip encompasses about 2.5 miles—the perfect distance for a long walk beside the water. Cottages dot the northern end of the beach, and all along the shore are clear views of the mountains, Puget Sound, and steamships sailing out to the horizon.

The site's 160-year history began at Alki Point during the arrival of Seattle's first white settlers. Chief Seattle's tribe greeted the weary travelers after their long, arduous journey and helped the tired crew build an adequate shelter.
