The Afoot & Afloat Guidebooks are for people who love water -- being on it or near it. That's why this series not only tell you where to take your boat but what you can do on land when you arrive at your destination. On the other hand, it's not necessary to own a boat to find fun things to do in these books. If you like to hike, bike, picnic, or see wildlife all with a beautiful Puget Sound backdrop, these titles will show you where to do that, complete with detailed driving directions and where to put in your kayak when you arrive.
