Car: Recommended

Lake Union is the closest lake to downtown Seattle. Most, if not all houseboats, are situated on the lake with access to a variety of water sports including kayaking and canoeing. Because of the proximity to downtown Seattle and its neighborhoods, all the city amenities and points of interest are less than 10 minutes away.
