Alki Beach offers a rare distinction when it comes to Seattle communities. It is a true beach front neighborhood providing everything you would expect from a resort destination. As you walk down the extra wide paved pathway headed toward the Point, you will have the magnificent views of Downtown Seattle to your right, with the Space Needle, ferry docking, ships easing their way into port to unload products from around the world and pleasure boats of every variety.
It is easy to relax with benches along the way to stop and enjoy the views, parks with plenty of grassy areas and beach with white sand, volley ball nets and fire pits to enjoy. As you notice the avid bicyclists, roller bladders and joggers admirably reaching their goals will feel at one with this amazing Seattle community on the water.
There are many choices when it is time to stop for refreshment or sustenance along the way as well. If you can think it, you can have it. Pizza by the slice, fish and chips, funky taverns, coffee shops, local one of a kind emporiums offering memorable trinkets, all with a special Alki flair you don’t find anywhere but here.
When it comes to homes in Alki, you will find great diversity, including lots of condo selections. There are contemporary designed buildings with art deco architecture and vibrant colors as well as historic brick buildings complete with intricate details and old fashion charm. You will not find views to be lacking when it comes to home selections either. Bay view condos are bountiful and enhance your living space with a never ending array of visual change depending on the weather and what is happening on the beach and in the water.
You are also in a brilliant location with easy access to downtown Seattle either by water taxi or a short commute via auto to put you where you need to be in convenient fashion. When all is said and done, you just can’t beat Alki for fun and an easy going lifestyle.
