Getting Around the Belltown neighborhood, Seattle, WA

For visitors and residents alike, Seattle is known as one of the most accessible cities in the U.S. Getting around town is as easy as 1-2-3 (and 4). Option 1 is the inexpensive Metro bus line, which weaves throughout the city and can quickly get you from Northgate to South Park or from West Seattle to Eastlake. Not only is the Metro convenient and easy on your wallet, but it's a great way to explore the different cultural spots in the city – like Fremont, Old-town Pioneer Square, the International District, and, of course, Pike Place Market. Option 2 is the light-rail system. Running from downtown to the Sea-Tac airport, this quick and easy rail line gets you where you need to go in no time. For every visitor new to the city, hop on the light rail out the front door of the airport and before you know it you'll be in the bustling SoDo district of downtown, ready to hit the town. The third, and most environmentally friendly option is to trade four-wheels for two and hop on one of Seattle's many bike paths. A city known for being bike-accessible, Seattle’s bike paths – including the Burke-Gilman and the Waterfront – stretch to the far corners of town and everywhere in between. Where there isn't a path, there's a road with a bike lane allowing you to safely and quickly get to your destination in style. Seattle's transportation system isn't just confined to land; the sea-bound Washington State Ferry system connects you to the numerous scenic and enjoyable islands on the West side of Puget Sound. Whether you choose to drive, bike or walk onto the ferry, your experience on this unique sea-shuttle will be unforgettable. Feel the wind in your hair from the bow, see the skyline fading away from the stern, and be sure to be on the look out for sea otters and whales. With 4 convenient, cheap, and fun options to get you quickly to your destination, Seattle’s transportation system was designed with you in mind.
