Lunch on the Bay
    An exquisite way to enjoy a meal

What can be more fun and relaxing than enjoying your lunch out on the water away from the hustle and bustle ashore? Buy your lunch at the floating market and depart on an old-fashioned mini excursion.

A century ago at the local ports towns, lunch time was an important time to get out on the water and relax. Most waterfront communities around the region had boat houses and liveries where people could rent canoes, row boats and sail boats, or depart on a leisurely motor boat or steam launch excursion.

It was always known back then that good food was important, but they also recognized that leisure time was just as important for a healthy mind.

Lake Union Park Floating Market Lunch on the Bay Options:

1. Board the Fremont Avenue and go on a half hour sight seeing trip around Lake Union. Just enough time to munch down and marvel at the beautiful views of the city skyline and floating homes.

2. Rent an antique rowboat from the Center for Wooden Boats only steps away from the floating market. Enjoy the ultimate tranquility of leisurely rowing out away from shore to dine in your own private oasis.
