Summertime in Kirkland

June 29, 2021


Summertime in Kirkland is a truly majestic time. For a few months, the clouds clear, the sun comes out, and it stays out! With record heat rolling through the PNW, beating it is the name of the game, and Kirkland offers lots of family friendly summer activities. 


Check out the local library

One of our favorites, and honestly underrated summer activities is visiting the library. Central AC and endless rows of knowledge provide for the perfect afternoon getaway. The best part is, no two trips are the same because there is always something new to discover at the library.

Water Activities

One of the most beautiful aspects of Kirkland is that it resides on Lake Washington, providing a plethora of summer activities in the water. You can rent a stand up paddle board, kayak, or boat, or even jump into the lake! It is the perfect way to cool off right here in our own backyard! 


If waterspouts are not your thing, the Kirkland waterfronts provide lots of dry options, such as Volleyball, grassy areas for picnics, or stretches of sand and docks to enjoy the waterfront views.
