Connected to Seattle by a floating bridge, Washington's Mercer Island is a scenic, green space within the city limits. Those traveling to Seattle for business or vacation, may enjoy opting to stay on Mercer Island in order to escape from the hustle and bustle of life within the city limits.
One charming thing about Mercer Island is all of the parks and greenery here. Just walking along the tree-lined streets and boulevards is pleasant enough to make visitors almost instantly forget about their worries and cares.
Newcastle Beach Park and Luther Beach Park are lovely places to spend a lazy afternoon reading a book, having a picnic, or collecting chestnuts in the fall months. The latter borders the water and contains a beach and a pleasant coastal walk as its name suggests.
At nearby Lake Washington, travelers can venture into the water on a boat and try their hand at freshwater fishing, since many different species of fish reside within the water's depths. Of course, if Mercer Island all feels a little too quiet, it is close enough to Seattle center that it is possible to take the trip there and back in a day.
The best time to visit Mercer Island is during the summer months when the temperatures are at their highest and walking around through parks and along the coast are enjoyable and do not warrant a heavy coat.
