This is a beautiful space to enjoy a lovely afternoon on the lake. Parking is somewhat limited but bring a blanket and a picnic and you can have a lovely time right on the water.

Matthews is a nice beach with lovely views across Lake Washington. However, the address and directions are wrong. It is at 93rd st. NE Off Sandpoint Way, not 51st.

This is a local beach in Seattle's Sandpoint neighborhood near the U. You'll probably best reach it with your own transportation, but a local bus does stop nearby. Ths beach houses an old airport hanger which now shows entertainment events. On a nice day there's...More
