If you come to Seattle you will miss something essential about this city if you do not get out on the water during your stay. There are so many ways to enjoy the sights from Seattle's lakes and Puget Sound, from small paddle boats to large ferries and everything in between. If the thought of large bodies of water or bobbing about in small boats scares you or makes you feel queasy, trust me, just down a Dramamine 15 minutes before you board and pick a large sturdy vessel. You won't regret it. Dining near or on the water is no problem. You can tie up at a restaurant dock for brunch, grab a quick lunch aboard a ferry, or take an elegant dinner cruise like those offered during summer months aboard the Royal Argosy, seen in the foreground here. Just get out there!
