  • We both just fell in love with the lake Washington and the city of Seattle as well as Sammamish and the entire greater area of Washington state.  more »
  • Jaunita Park in Kirkland is on Lake Washington and is a very nice and clean place to have lunch or take a break while looking at the lake, or in the summer to go for a swim. They have restrooms and pl...  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!
