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.
