2014 Seattle Floating Home Tour
The Seattle Floating Homes Association is pleased to announce their biennial Floating Homes Tour in 2014, taking place Sunday, September 7, from 12 to 5 PM. The theme of this year's tour, "Wonderful Water Colors," is an apt description of the twelve colorful homes open for viewing.
The tour will feature a dozen homes, on the East and West shores of Lake Union. The admission price includes electric boat and bus shuttle transportation between the north and south ends of the tour. This is a self-guided walking tour and participants should expect to walk between docks, beginning at any home they wish. Comfortable, slip-on shoes are strongly recommended. There are stairs and uneven surfaces on some of the docks. Participants will be required to remove their shoes or put slippers over their shoes; slippers will be provided. No backpacks or strollers will be allowed in the homes.
The tour will take place rain or shine, and participants of all ages will be required to have a ticket, with the exception of babes in arms. Free espresso drinks and restroom facilities will be provided. Refreshment stands will be set up to offer food and drink for purchase.
Participants will be treated to an afternoon visiting a series of floating homes each with its own fascinating history, architecture and art, and inhabitants reflecting the spirit and evolution of the historic community. These unique homes evoke the uncommon lifestyle of their floating inhabitants who share a love of water, boats and wildlife. Participants will enjoy viewing a diverse array of home designs that range from charming water cottages to grandiose floating manors.
