Mercer Island, WA

If you’ve ever spent any time on Lake Washington, or traveled across the I-90 floating bridges to Seattle, you are familiar with Mercer Island.  The city of Mercer Island is named after the Mercer family of Seattle.  The Mercer Brothers, Thomas and Asa Shinn, used to regularly row between the island and Seattle to fish, hunt and pick berries.  The city was first settled between 1870 and 1880.  In 1928 a bridge was built to connect Mercer Island to Bellevue and soon thereafter a bridge to Seattle was under construction.  In 1940, the Lacey V Murrow bridge, which is the largest floating bridge on Earth, was opened and would carry current day I-90 across the lake into Seattle.  The city began to grow, and on August 9th, 1970 the city of Mercer Island was officially incorporated into King County.

Moving to Mercer Island, Washington

Why should I move to Mercer Island?

The City of Mercer Island is a unique and beautiful place.  Surrounded by the largest lake in the state, Lake Washington, it boasts some of the most sought after waterfront real estate in the Northwest. 

Mercer Island is right in the middle of the largest economic hubs in Washington State.  With travel times measured in minutes to Seattle, or Bellevue there are no shortage of employment opportunities nearby.  Companies like Amazon, Microsoft, Starbucks and Boeing are all within your reach. 

Mercer Island is easily commutable by Eastside and Seattle workers.  I-90, the main East to West Interstate in Washington, runs through the northern end of the island making it easy to get where you want to go.  Sea-Tac airport is just a shuttle ride away.  If you own a boat, the lake is dotted with marinas and public docks, so a maritime commute with an Uber ride, bus, or light rail once dockside is not out of the question for many.

The housing in Mercer Island is well known locally as upscale, high end and modern.  However, there are quite a few options for people from all income brackets.  There are luxury waterfront properties as well as mid island condominiums.  The one thing you won’t find on this island is suburban sprawl.  There are many unique homes and beautiful views to see here.  If you are looking for island life with city amenities right next door, Mercer Island is the place for you.

What sort of fun things are there to do in Mercer Island?

Mercer Islanders have a fantastic balance to life!  They have the beach and the city.  They have high end restaurants and corner bistros.  They can walk out their back doors to hiking and biking trails, or sit on a dock with a line in the water.  They are on a modified version of ‘Island Time’ that is all their own pace. 

The island has two small business districts.  The largest is on the North end of Mercer Island where you’ll find cute, unique little boutiques and eateries, thrift shops and bookstores.  When you find yourself on the North End, do not forget to stop by the Roanoke for a bite and a brew.  This little pub has been serving Mercer Islanders for generations.  Towards the South end of Mercer Island, you’ll find Pioneer Park, a smaller business area with grocery stores and your larger chain sandwich shops and stores.  The park itself with miles of hiking and equestrian trails is the major attraction though.

Lake Washington is the largest lake in King County and 2nd largest in the state.  It is a destination for many.  At over 22 miles long, the lake offers an endless amount of recreational possibilities.  From several beach parks on Mercer Island, you can watch the Blue Angels practice for their part in the annual hydroplane races that take place during Seafair Weekend (hyperlink). 

Speaking of parks, you will have your choice of several relaxing spots to hike, bike, swim, sunbathe, picnic and launch the boat for a day on the lake.  Check out Luther Burbank park for sun and fun during the summer.  With just over 77 acres and ¾ of a mile of waterfront, this park is a destination for many islanders.  Several other waterfront parks dot the island with tennis and basketball courts, hiking, biking and equestrian trails, barbecues and picnic shelters, public beaches and docks.

If you are an outdoor enthusiast, Mercer Island is just over an hour’s drive from Snoqualmie Pass Ski and Recreation area.  Mt. Rainier National Park is close by.  The Puget Sound is 15 minutes away and the Pacific Ocean isn’t much further.  Mercer Island hosts several festivals, markets and fairs that go on throughout the year.  There are several golf courses including The Golf Club at Newcastle that are close by.  Hiking, biking, fishing, golfing, kayaking, skiing, camping, boating, dining, shopping.  The list goes on and on! 

What about Mercer Island Schools and Education?

Mercer Island School District services the city.  There are four elementary schools, Islander Middle School and Mercer Island High School.  The district offers excellent programming and extracurricular activities and receives high marks from its pta and alumni. 

Mercer Island is a fantastic place for future minded families as well.  The city’s proximity to major universities, community colleges and technical schools is unparalleled in the Northwest.
