Lake Union in the fall
is a different kind of experience than in the summer. The trees are golden, the air is crisp, and the fun doesn't stop just because the temperature drops a couple degrees. This is Seattle, after all.
We've celebrated our 70th Anniversary year all summer on the Sunday Historical Cruise, but we're not ready to say goodbye to this tour so soon. Below is a bit of lake trivia to tied you over 'til we see you this weekend.
Fun Fact: Lake Washington
This lake is 21.75 miles long, making it the second biggest lake in Washington State (after Lake Chelan). We're number two!
Fun Fact: Lake Union
Lake Union was named by Thomas Mercer in 1854, who predicted Lake Washington would one day connect to the Puget Sound in a “union of waters," which they have! From Montlake Cut, to Fremont Cut, and down the Ballard Locks into Elliott Bay.
