Queen Anne Views: Summer Cruise Ships Are Here!

They’re here!

…to transport passengers on an Alaskan getaway. The cruise ships are great for Seattle tourism plus local businesses and also treat residents of Magnolia and Queen Anne to a moving landscape from their very own yards. Some locals are upset with more Interbay traffic and up & down the Magnolia bridge or in Interbay. Others close to the pier complain of loud music and pollution created by the big boats, but mostly the cruise ships contribute to both Magnolia and Queen Anne views. One can’t deny the ‘cool factor’ when the ships announce departure from Puget Sound with the deep bellow of the horns.

Seattle sunsets with 202 scheduled cruise ships to set sail will create countless images and motion for folks to follow.

It’s estimated that each boat contributes $2 Million to the local economy and about 4,300 jobs to people around the Pacific Northwest. Many photographers, including ones within our real estate industry, capture ship traffic to add visual interest to pictures posted on our property listings. Queen Anne View Homes demand a premium price. Even a peek a boo view out of the corner of a room is desirable by Queen Anne buyers. There are many different types of views from the hill. When creating listings I tag the type of view it has because it’s an important feature of the property.  Whether the home has East, West and or Western exposure are all details to share with readers.

Queen Anne Living: West Slope:

Soundview Terrace Park on the West Slope of Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood is quite amazing and a wonderful hidden gem.  It has a beautiful play area and huge views of Puget Sound – hence the name.   Queen Anne view homes line the streets above it and this park is perched perfectly for all to enjoy and reflect.

A reflective place on Queen Anne:

It is sad, but Soundview Terrace is actually a memorial park dedicated to the memory of six children who lost their lives on the 1/31/2000 Alaska Airlines Flight 261 plane crash.   Rachel was a little girl who was only six when she died. Apparently,  she played here almost every day. It is a wonderful place to really appreciate life and the beauty of Seattle.
