Taking in Puget Sound from Seattle’s Magnolia Neighborhood

Since I was a kid I had only seen the majestic views of Puget Sound in Washington on television and online. In fact I had never been to the Pacific Northwest. Both of those things changed during a recent summer when my now wife and I spent a little bit of time in Seattle.

While there we took a bus tour and one of the stops was Magnolia Park in the well-kept Northwest Seattle neighborhood of Magnolia. We got off the bus within a small narrow section of the park in a residential area and what awaited us were panoramic views of, you guessed it, Puget Sound.

I just stared out into the open water and at Bainbridge Island and behind that sat opposite. Looking to the south sat views of the Seattle skyline off in the distance. There were plenty of park benches to go around and just take it all in. I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.

It was an exciting stop being able to take in Puget Sound and experience Pacific Northwest beauty in-person.

  1. Just spent a few days in both Seattle and the Pudget Sound area. The city is unique and full of things to do and the outlaying towns/islands are breathtakingly beautiful. Definitely somewhere I’d consider return ing to.

    • Cool beans! Definitely agree. Only scratched the service during my time there. Loved the Pike Place Market area as well. Do hope to get back sometime soon, cheers!
