Summer officially starts this weekend, so it’s the perfect time to enjoy the warm weather lake side. We recommend heading to Leschi for great views, fine wine, and a fantastic condo.

Wet (but not too wild) on the Waterfront

A marina and promenade on Leschi make it at an active spot, but not party central. (That’s more the vibe of Madison Beach to the north.) It’s a little more chill, with families taking strolls, 20-somethings hanging on and diving off of the T-dock. Sweeping views of Rainier, the Bellevue skyline, the floating bridge and, of course, the Cascades extend over the water. It’s quintessentially Seattle.

Leschi Park: A Perfect Spot to Picnic

In addition to the dock, the 20-acre Leschi Park offers ample places to sit and have a little nosh and wine. You don’t even need to bring a lot yourself. Just stop by Leschi Market next to the park. This family-owned grocer has a famously good wine selection and a delicious deli.

The Open House of Our Glorious New Listing in Leschi

The Leschi neighborhood’s premiere condo association welcomes you with open arms. You’ll always know if the mountain is out, thanks to the view from your private deck. And even when the lake is too cold for a dunk, you can still get a swim in at the private pool. It’s a perfect location for commuters (and sailors).

Dinner With a View at Daniel’s Broiler

The good eats and great wines should continue into the evening at Daniel’s Broiler. This beloved steakhouse has been a favorite for families and couples for decades. Sip selections from its award-winning wine list while watching dusk settle over the lake and the sunset glow on the cascades.
