Outside Magazine's Urban Adventure
Where-to guides to outdoor adventure—indispensable for today's young urbanites who crave active outdoor sports and won't settle for less.
Seattle is blessed with myriad sports opportunities. Puget Sound is a worldwide sea kayaking, sailing, and fishing mecca; Mount Rainier tops every young mountaineer's must-do list. For newcomers and longtime residents, Urban Adventure: Seattle supplies the details and tips that would otherwise take years to acquire. You'll find salmon fishing from your kayak within city limits; nearby island camping to rival that in the San Juans, without the crowds; bouldering routes within thirty minutes of town; and the wildest annual whitewater kayak weekend around.
