This isn't the world's largest lake, deepest lake or even the prettiest lake, but it is the lake around Seattle was built – and linked to Lake Washington and the Puget Sound via the locks and canals. Which are a beautiful place to walk around. Hence the recommendation for visiting the area. Alternatively get out on the water – which is more still than you might imagine – in a canoe and see the sights from the water, including the floating homes on the water (in 'Sleepless in Seattle', Tom Hanks' character lived in one of these.).

The main parks, so starting points for a walk or a row are North Passage Point Park, South Passage Point Park, Fairview Park, Terry Pettus Park, and South Lake Union Park.
