  • Houseboats and a very active lake. If you are luck you might see Mt. Rainier. A journey into lake Union provides you with more houseboats and the Seattle skyline.  more »

  • I LOVE lake Washington! My aunt has lived there forever and she has a few boats. The lake is where we spend all of our time when we’re up there. In the summer the water is nice, and people are respectful and don’t make big waves right by you. I think everybody should go there
  • This is a huge, no, I mean gigantic hole over 20 miles long and over 100 feet deep in some places just north of Down Town Seattle. It’s so big, King County decided to build 2 bridges just to get across it. Oh, and forget crossing it on foot, it’s filled with water.
  • Several easily accessible parking stalls along the perimeter if you want to enjoy the view. Of course you have to get on the lake to gawk at the homes (reminiscent of Hollywood drive-by tours). Many places, especially along Kirkland, to hop onto a lake cruise.
  • Very big. I thought it was the biggest in Washington, but it isn't. I still like it anyway.
  • Beautiful lake. Yarrow point, Clyde's hill, laurelhurst and some other high end neighborhoods have some view homes that afford large panoramic sweeping views. Quite spectacular, but you will pay significantly for it!
