Seokchon Lake with a Toddler in Seoul, Korea
Exercising with a toddler in tow is always a struggle, except if you have a beautiful place to walk or run with a stroller. Thankfully every time we have to go out to Jamsil or Lotte World we can stop at the Seokchon Lake and take a 2 mile walk around the lake and enjoy the fresh air and exercise together. The best part is during cherry blossom season the trees come to life, the lake even sponsors a cherry blossom festival and the Lotte World characters come out to take free pictures with the kids walking around the lake.
Sam enjoys getting out of the stroller on our walks to check out some of the stops around the lake. The lake is home to several fishes and ducks that love to be fed.
After your walk if you need a little coffee pick me up stop by the restaurant, Cafe GOGOS. The restaurant has outdoor seating. Inside the cafe, animation memorabilia line the walls and tables. Sam gets a kick out of picking where she wants to sit. The burgers are delicious and they offer a cheese and nuts plate for snack that Sam really enjoys.
