Destination guide

Kirkland is a chilled-out alternative to Seattle

Visions of Seattle and the mighty Olympic Mountains unfold like a majestic display of cityscape and nature from the waterfront parks of Kirkland. Offering a charming medley of handsome urban buildings, local cafes, sports halls, independent art galleries, and family-friendly Kirkland vacation rentals, Kirkland is a chilled-out destination. You can come here to explore the great Space Needle and Puget Sound, or just for something more low-key on the Seattle outskirts.

Things to do

Kirkland's parks and Seattle's draws

Juanita Beach Park starts the fun rolling in Kirkland with its summertime volleyball courts and picnic areas. Then there's the wilder Saint Edward State Park to the north of town, which fringes Lake Washington with its hemlock groves and mighty Douglas-firs. Meanwhile, Seattle lays just across 520, offering its enthralling medley of sights and experiences – the Space Needle, that edgy Museum of Pop Culture, the huge Seattle Aquarium with its sea otters and octopi.


Enjoy the great outdoors in Kirkland

Booked a Kirkland vacation rental on Lake Washington? That's the perfect spot from which to launch guided boat cruises that reveal the innovative past of Kirkland's local inhabitants, and showcase some of the most magnificent architecture fringing the banks. Walkthroughs of the regional breweries – a real Pacific Northwest penchant – are also possible, while more intrepid walkthroughs of the dense spruce and fir forests that clad the nearby hills are there for outdoorsy types.


Kirkland is for summers in the Seattle area

One of the great pulls of Kirkland vacation rentals is that they offer a leafy, homey base that's within easy reach of Seattle city. To help your whole family make the most of sandy Juanita Beach Park and the towering hemlock forests of the other state parks, it might be better to plan that trip for the warmer, drier months of the year. Wait for May, when the heavy Pacific Northwest downpours drop off, and don't come later than October, when temperatures usually falter to below 60.

Natural features

Kirkland sits between the lake and the mountains

Kirkland has a couple of small municipal parks that offer a taster of nature in the heart of the city, but, for a real slice of Pacific Northwest wilderness, the larger reserves on the outskirts are better. Start with the Saint Edward State Park, which rumbles upwards with hills dressed in green fern blooms and groves of Douglas-fir. That still pales in comparison to the wondrous peaks of the Wenatchee National Forest, where the Bridal Veil Falls Trail passes crashing waterfalls, glacial mountains hide to the north, and wolves and wolverines move between the spruces.
