Lake Union is the infamous fresh water lake situated within Seattle. This 580 acre urban lake offers everything, from kayaking to stand-up paddling to boat tours. The shore of this lake includes the Gas Works Park, the small Centre for Wooden Boats, the Museum of History and Industry, and countless restaurants. Sea Planes take off and land frequently. One can also find many house boats and floating houses (there is a difference) at the lake, the famous house being the place where Tom Hanks lives in the movie Sleepless in Seattle.

  • A lake in the middle of a city

  • nice relaxing place to visit in the middle of a bustling city

  • Scenic Lake abutting Downtown Seattle. Developed, but fairly smartly as seems to be the Seattle way. Gasworks Park at the opposite end from downtown (north), on an abuttment of land with waterways breaking to either side. The lake is lined by marinas and houseboats, many of which are stunning and worth the time to view. You can travel the lake by kayak ( recommend Northwest Outdoor Center, off Westlake Ave N) or electric boat (recommend Electric Boat Co, same location); we did both. Kayaking much less expensive and gives you a more intimate experience. I am sure other options are available, from stand-up paddle-boarding to motorboat rental. This is a definite must-do when visiting Seattle. Cap it off with a quick drive over to Fremont for a meal, a drink and a sunset view of Seattle from Gasworks Park.
