We stayed at the Hyatt Regency Lake Washington for 5 days and although the was a lot of smoke haze, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and walks along the lakes edge. Found a wonderful little French cafe.

Lake Washington is absolutely beautiful, especially at night! Perfect place to watch the sunset or cruise on a boat and look at all the fancy houses. We were lucky enough to be on a boat during the Mercer Island fireworks and it was spectacular!

I have been up and down dozens of beaches on Lake Washington my whole life! Every time you think you know them all, you hear about another beautiful public park/beach. Never gets old.

Absolutely beautiful lake to kayak, ski, SUP. Bellevue shore has gorgeous lakeside homes. I have accessed lake from the University and the Bellevue shore. Never very crowded with boaters, so lots of room to enjoy.

I actually had not heard about this until your question, I plan to also go check this out now since it's not too far from my neighborhood. Hope you get the chance to visit.
