The proximity to Seattle, low crime rate, the tranquil and woodsy ambiance, and excellent schools have made Mercer Island one of the most desirable places to live in the region.
Most residents of Mercer Island consider it their own special paradise, a woodsy haven floating in the middle of Lake Washington, suspended by the ribbon of Interstate 90 between the metropolitan hubs of Seattle and Bellevue.
Mercer Island the only city in King County located on an island, and the only community in King County in which the boundary of the city and the school district serving the community are identical.
Minutes from the Mercer Island Transit Station and Mercer Island residents have exclusive single occupant HOV access to and from Seattle.
