Exploring South Lake Union: Things to Do During the Pandemic
When the stay-at-home orders were lifted, Executive Inn in Seattle took on the necessary precautions to ensure the health and safety of our staff and guests. We rolled out strict measures that followed social distancing guidelines to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
Recently, new regulations were launched as a response to the state’s surge in COVID-19 cases. These restrictions are largely focused on indoor social gatherings, as they are hotbeds for infection. Executive Inn is adhering to these rules by modifying our venue guidelines. We have compiled a list of fun activities you can do during your stay in South Lake Union.
What to Do in South Lake Union
After months of being stuck at home, it’s understandable that you might have forgotten how to have fun or what to do outside your home. Safety guidelines in commercial spaces have also lowered the number of things you can do inside these establishments.
This is why we provide guests with a list of outdoor activities to keep them entertained during their stay. Here are popular activities you’ll love.
Enjoy the Water
Lake Union Park is known for being a hub of activity. Its expanse has made it easy for people to spend time outdoors while following physical distancing protocols. But if you’re looking for some solitude, consider exploring the lake.
- Rent a vessel of your choice, whether it’s a kayak, a paddleboard, or a sailboat. Day rates range from $18 to $24 by the hour. You may explore a specific spot or traverse the entire lake during your allotted time.
- Tour Lake Union while learning how to sail with the Center for Wooden Boats. They provide private lessons that are available in one to two-hour increments for locals and non-locals.
Enjoy the Trails
South Lake Union is known for its nature trails. If you don’t like the water, you have your pick of biking, running, and hiking trails that you can explore on your own or with a companion.
- Take in the sights by enjoying a bike ride through the Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop. This six-mile trail circles the entirety of Lake Union, allowing you to see the city’s central body of water in all its glory.
- Explore Seattle’s natural landscape when you hike the trails of Discovery Park. Cited as the city’s largest park, it has 12 miles of trails that give you scenic views of the surrounding area.
- Go for a run in any of the trails in the area. The Green River Trail has nearly 20 miles of paved pathway that joggers and runners enjoy.
