Catch the best sunset view in the neighborhood

Sadly, our long summer days and warm nights are coming to a end for this season. Last night we found a good way to savor what’s left, with what must be the best sunset view within walking distance:

I’ve traveled to places like Key West Florida where people stake out strategic positions hours ahead of time to watch sunsets half as good as this one. But you can grab this one for free, with a nice bench to sit on, while supplies of late daylight last.

Find it at the new Mt Baker Ridge Viewpoint Park at 1403 31st Ave S, walkable within 45 minutes from 23rd & Cherry, on the #14 bus line, or via car with on-street parking in the area.

Sunset is at 7:49pm today, losing about two minutes per day from here through December. Full schedule here.

And while you’re in the area, businesses on the block include That’s Amore (with patio seating), Dog Mania, Sweet & Savory pastries & espresso, and Dahlia Spa

  1. And don’t forget the Leschi Natural Area at 36th and E. Terrace and the patio at the Central Area Senior Center at 500 30th Ave. S. for morning or moonlight views.
