Visiting South Lake Union
You can complete the approximately 15-mile trip from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to South Lake Union hotels by taxi, rental car, private limo, shuttle service, or public transportation. Start the journey at the Link Light Rail station connected to the airport's parking garage, and then connect to a Metro Transit bus or streetcar. After checking in to your Seattle hotel, explore the neighborhood's attractive Cascade district with its historic churches and commercial buildings, or head to Denny Park, the oldest park in Seattle. Another of the neighborhood's parks, the 12-acre Lake Union Park, will keep you entertained for hours with its scenic shoreline, history trail, grassy lawns, and a wharf with several immaculately restored historic ships. The park's most notable feature is the former Naval Reserve building that's home to the Museum of History and Industry. The museum boasts an enormous collection of items relating to the heritage of Seattle and the Puget Sound region. See Boeing's first commercial plane, learn about the Great Fire of Seattle, and discover maritime history in a gallery that's a replica of a ship's bridge. Make the most of your time in Washington with a day trip to a destination outside the city, such as Mount Rainier, the San Juan Islands, or Snoqualmie Falls. Rental cars in South Lake Union make it easy to see all of these natural treasures.
