      Sleepless in Seattle floating home cruise

      A uniquely Seattle form of living immortalized in the movie Sleepless in Seattle houseboats currently line the shores of Lake Union and Portage Bay. The floating homes of Seattle have a history as long as the city itself. Originally built as crude structures on rafts to house logging workers, the houseboats really took off during the depression of the 1930′s, with people seeking cheap housing building temporary quarters on top of old cedar logs. These "temporary" structures took hold in the psyche of Seattle, and after numerous legal battles throughout the years, there remains 480 or so that still exist.

      Cruise Lake Union, Portage Bay and the Lake Washington ship cannal on Seattle Premium Sailing's "Sleepless in Seattle" floating home tours. Learn the interesting history of this unique Seattle lifestyle.
