This lake is for everyone. Walking trails, boating, fishing and exploring. Good sailing or kayaking are both possibly here. Some areas are crowded with homes others are secluded. Have a blast.

If you have a day off and you want to really be relaxed then this is one of the places that i recommend you to go to. Go for a walk or a swimming. Recommended for a family day out

There are so many ways to enjoy this lake. It has secluded beaches. It is great for sailing. It has a trippy pontoon bridge for driving. What I like best, however, is approaching it from the Sound by way of the locks!

Gorgeous blue water. Fabulous scenery, especially on a sunny day. Great views from the shore or from the water. Take a drive "across the lake" on the 520 (Evergreen Point) or I-90 floating bridges! The 520 bridge is the longest floating bridge in the world.

Visited Seattle & saw the Blue Angels fly during SeaFair at Lake Washington. Absolutely breath taking. Beautiful environment & worth the effort of planning.

There were boat races going on while we were there. The Blue Angels, and lots of boat traffic. Very well attended. This lake is large, lots to see. Some beautiful homes along the lake.

Lake Washington is beautiful and very long. Seattle is bordered on two sides by water. Puget Sound on the west, and Lake Washington on the east side. There are so many amazing parks along Lake Washington it's hard to visit them all. If you're visiting Seattle you must find a way to get yourself down to the shores of the... More
