All About

Living in Mercer Island, WA

Mercer Island apartments rest on a land mass in the middle of Lake Washington, which is connected to neighboring Seattle communities by Interstate-90, a busy thoroughfare that runs east to west through the Northwestern territory.

You and your family can spend weekends enjoying the glistening water as you venture through the myriad wooded parks that line the shores, notably Hollerbach Park and Groveland Park.

To meet your new neighbors and engage in fun recreational activities, you can join the Mercer Island Beach Club. There you can break a sweat and take advantage of the fitness center, which comes complete with premier cardio and weightlifting equipment, or you can sign up for one of the Crossfit classes. The Beach Club also has an aquatics center, where you can do some laps or play in the pool as you enjoy the seasonable Northwestern weather - and the little ones can join the swim team or water polo league.

For all of your retail needs your Mercer Island apartment for rent is just a stone's throw away from the South End Shopping Center. You are also only a short drive away from the mainland, where the busy urban environment has a slew of vendors.

If you attend religious services, there are several welcoming congregations on Mercer Island, such as the St. Monica Catholic Church and the Mercer Island Presbyterian Church.

Finding great activities for your little ones will not be a difficult task. If they have a proclivity toward athletics, take them down to Homestead Field and hit a couple dingers or let them indulge their daredevil side at Mercerdale Skate Park. If they enjoy partaking in the arts, they can always get involved at the Youth Theatre Northwest.
