Houseboat Party; Fun Facts on our Favorite Fields

Our sister site Curbed Seattle took part in the inaugural installment of Curbed Outdoors Week, an all-encompassing tour of the best and brightest the outdoors have to offer around the Sound. Here are some highlights:

LAKE UNION—There's nothing Seattleites love more than a couple of houseboats -- after all, they make it possible to simultaneously be the guy with a boat and the guy with a cool house -- so we took a tour of three on-the-market floating homes on the shores of Lake Union and Portage Bay.

SODO—We'd be seriously slighting the fine citizens of SoDo if we skipped out on the two biggest, most expensive outdoor spaces the city has to offer. Get the facts on Safeco Field and the newly dubbed Century Link Field from top to bottom.

PORT ANGELES—Alright, you're a little jaded to seeing mountains all the time. What can you expect when a the harrowing trip past Boeing Field leaves you stuck in traffic in plain view of Mount Rainier every night? Nonetheless, owning a mountain-view property is a pretty great way to impress your East Coast friends, so we picked out some listings near Hurricane Ridge and Crystal Mountain.
