  WHAT’S LIVING IN Lake City LIKE?

Lake City is a district in the northeast region of Seattle that comprises several smaller neighborhoods: Victory Heights, Meadowbrook, Matthews Beach, Cedar Park, and Olympic Hills.

The area is known for its many used car sale lots, but has much more to offer than just a deal on an automobile. The main street, Lake City Way, is home to diverse dining options and businesses.

And there are lots of parks for the outdoor-minded, including Matthews Beach, which has the largest freshwater swimming beach in the city.

Housing-wise, you'll find newly built condos and apartments mixed with single-family homes.

Lake City is bordered on the north by Lake Forest Park, on the east by Lake Washington, on the south by Wedgwood and View Ridge, and on the west by Northgate.
