Wanna go boating? Sailing? Watch the sunset? Or ride the duck around the lake? Maybe watch Fourth of July fireworks? It's all here. The main feature of this lake is the water as there seems to always be plenty of it available no matter what time of year. This allows for boating, swimming, kayaking, and other aquatic activities and is especially beneficial if you are a fish or other water dwelling creature. There's also the Duck tourist boat/truck ride that dips into the lake – we opted for duck tour and it was magical! The lake affords a great Seattle Skyline view while heading north. Also, while transiting the lake, we were treated to a landing by Seattle Seaplanes and numerous yachts and fabulous houseboats. They offer really cheap parking as well! Honestly, once you are here you actually want to just be here for the rest of your day – so make sure you don’t have anything on the list if you plan on visiting Lake union!
Lake Union – The water, the skyline and literally everything here is magical!
