Seattle's Magnuson Park has long been a local favorite for its beaches, ball fields, and the ever-popular off-leash dog area. Many people know it was once home to a busy naval air station. But did you know the area played a big role in the early years of Boeing's development?

Should Seattle have a nude beach? Supporters keep trying to convince reluctant city officials. Nudists got a meeting with Seattle parks officials Tuesday, but the idea of a nude beach may not have legs.
