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.
