Green Lake

The neighborhood of Green Lake surrounds the eponymous lake, which is 50,000 years old. It was formed by the Vashon Glacial Ice Sheet, which also gave Seattle, among other things, Puget Sound. Green Lake (the neighborhood) is a pleasant stroll. It has a few shops and eateries along the lake, and one stand-out B&B, if you're looking to be far from Downtown's busy streets.
