I "urban hiked" from USCG Station Seattle all the way to Gas Works Park in Fremont just to watch the summer solstice parade in June (2014). I could have driven, but why bother when I have feet? This is only a 3-mile loop of a 14-mile round-tripper for me. What fun it was, but afterward my feet hurt. To be clear, I was a spectator. If you haven't ever been to the solstice parade, google it first for details, then go. Just. Go.
