    An island with connections that's still a land unto itself

    Mercer Island, named for the pioneer Thomas Mercer, was first settled between 1870 and 1880. Thomas and his brother Asa often rowed between the island and Seattle to pick berries, hunt, and fish. In 1930, a bridge was built to connect the island to Seattle, and since then, it's been well connected to neighboring communities on the mainland. Still, Mercer Island has a unique, independent feel, and your vacation rental likely will, too. Picking berries may no longer be a popular pastime, but rowing a boat and casting a line are still the rage.

    Park yourself in one of Mercer Island's picturesque parks

    Wherever your Mercer Island vacation rental lies, it'll likely be close to one of the city's beloved parks. Luther Burbank Park stretches over 77 acres with almost a mile of waterfront. You can dock your boat, fish on the pier, and swim on the beach. When you're tuckered out, take advantage of the barbecues and picnic area. Aubrey Davis Park has softball fields, and tennis and basketball courts. Pioneer Park features trails for bikers, hikers, and horses, and Deane's Children's Park (a.k.a. Dragon Park) is tailor-made for tots.

    A couple things Mercer Island cultivates: community and kids

    Visitors and year-round residents of Mercer Island are fans of the Mercer Island Community and Event Center. The modern facility features panoramic views of Lake Washington and the Cascade Mountains and hosts community events and concerts. If you're in the area, check out the center's Mercer Gallery, where work by local artists is on display. Just over the bridge in Bellevue, families with curious kids will get a kick out of KidsQuest Children's Museum, where exhibits, classes, and galleries are designed with kids aged 0 to 10 in mind.

    There's nothing seasonal about family-friendly charm

    For a little island so far north, Mercer Island still enjoys warm summers, with temperatures in the mid to high 70s. Summers are also relatively dry, and it's in fall, winter, and spring that you'll need to remember your rain gear. Winter lows aren't too crazy, and though it's too cold for swimming, travelers can still enjoy brisk walks on the waterfront. If you're set on taking a dip in the ocean, book your Mercer Island vacation rental in summer. Otherwise, the parks and boat launches are in working order year-round.

    Mercer Island is small, but big enough for furry friends

    Set on an island 5 miles long, and about a mile and a half wide, your Mercer Island vacation rental will very likely be shaded by a pleasing mix of deciduous trees and conifers, like the mighty Douglas fir. The fertile forests provide visitors and residents with sightings of butterflies, woodpeckers, foxes, and bats. Luther Burbank Park, in particular, has wildlife on display, especially in the wetlands on the park's north and south ends. Feast your eyes on 135 species of birds and 50 species of waterfowl, plus raccoons, beaver, muskrats, tree frogs, and rabbits.
