Best Picnic Spot

Lincoln Park

One part of Lincoln Park feels cozy and breathtaking at the same time—two qualities seldom found together, but just what you need for the ultimate outdoor dining experience. Here's what you need to know. Heading south on Fauntleroy Way Southwest, drive past the main entrance to the park and turn into the next parking lot. Right away you'll see an expansive lawn nestled by evergreens (providing the coziness). There's a playground off to one side where kids can play. As it happens, though, the lawn sits on a bluff just above Puget Sound, which beckons thrillingly from the pastoral scene on top. When you're done eating, head down the short path to the beach for a postprandial walk among the driftwood. NINA SHAPIRO
