SEATTLE AREA TOUR # 5 : MERCER ISLAND
Measuring five miles long and two miles wide, stunning views are the norm on Mercer Island. Among the vistas are Lake Washington, the Seattle skyline, Mount Rainier, the Puget Sound and the Cascade Mountains. A floating bridge connects the island to Seattle, Bellevue and beyond.
Though just 15 minutes from two major cities, Mercer Island retains its rural feel with few big businesses and quiet, evergreen neighborhoods. The city's 23 parks provide ample spots for recreation and relaxation. A small business district on the island's north end offers residents a variety of shops and restaurants.
