Lake Union



Lake Union is a popular recreational spot for Seattleites and visitors. During the summer months one can observer many kayakers. Boats from Lake Washington pass through Lake Union on their way to Puget Sound.

Seaplanes operated by Kenmore air, the largest seaplane airline in the world, land on and take off from the lake a few times a day. Most planes taking off from here head towards the San Juan Islands, but some are sightseeing flights of the area.

Gas Works Park on the north side is the largest park on Lake Union. Many concerts take place here during the summer, and it is also one of two major Fourth of July fireworks shows in Seattle. From the park one can enjoy great views of Downtown Seattle and it’s also the city’s prime kite-flying spot.

It’s an interesting fact that Seattle has more houseboats than anywhere east of Asia, and most are located on Lake Union. They line the east and west sides of the lake. In the movie Sleepless in Seattle, the character played by Tom Hanks lived in such a home. Those who want to experience lakefront living can stay in a “bunk and breakfast” anchored in the lake.

You can have a nice stroll along the Lake Union’s shoreline or to get a real feeling of it, you can rent kayaks, skiffs and sailboats. On Chandler’s Cove there are a few good restaurants for those who want to stay on land.
