Leschi

GET TO KNOW

Leschi

Leschi’s waterfront views of Lake Washington and proximity to the I-90 bridge have made it a hot spot for commuters. The neighborhood is perfectly located for those who need to get downtown or over to the Eastside. The Leschi neighborhood acquired a more architecturally and demographically diverse character in the 1950s and ‘60s. The family-owned Leschi Market was established at that time and is still a favorite spot for picnickers and wine connoisseurs. The market has an excellent selection of local and imported wines!

When one climbs uphill toward the Central District from the water, one finds that Leschi’s winding roads sometimes intersect with wooded nature trails, frequented by local runners and hikers. Cyclists, meanwhile, enjoy riding along Lakeside Drive, which (as it merges with Lake Washington Boulevard) connects Leschi to other neighborhoods. This includes Madrona and Madison Park to the north, and Mount Baker to the south. During rush hour, it’s a popular path for commuters who want to avoid stoplights.

During the day it is a quiet path, with a string of eateries popular among Leschi residents and the lively crowds that make Leschi a destination in the summer months. Leschi doesn’t have much in the way of retail and services, but adjacent neighborhoods do. The scenic roads make it easy and pleasant to reach what you need.
