With a population of nearly 47,000, Kirkland is one of Seattle's best suburbs.The town is situated on the shores of Lake Washington, and the downtown area enjoys a brilliant lakefront setting. The city also provides one of the most pedestrian and bicycle friendly places to live in the country. Huge efforts have been made to accommodate non-motorized ways of navigating Kirkland, so when you start the search for your Kirkland apartment, keep that in mind.
Marinas and More
Many of the town's recreational activities center around the lakefront, and there are miles of linked trails for biking or running. Yarrow Bay and Marina Park are both great places to explore for the waterfront and for shopping. The downtown area is the center for entertainment with galleries, shopping and a very good performance center, which always has something on offer. Kirkland is also home to summer training for the Seattle Seahawks so the football fan will have plenty to keep them busy.
The Big Greek
Once in your Kirkland apartment, you'll want to get out and try some of the town's best restaurants. Whether big or small, you'll find quite a range of cuisines. Santorini's is fantastic Greek food where the prices are low, they only take cash but you'll get heaping portions of great food. Lynn's Bistro is more upscale with classic French foods, and the Santa Fe Mexican Grill shouldn't be missed. There are any number of very good Asian places from sushi to Chinese to Korean, and whether you eat in or take out, you won't be disappointed.
At night, wine bars are popular and one of the best is Brix where they are very serious about their wines but the atmosphere is fun. For friendly local style pubs, stop into Tony's or Danny's. Obviously, it won't take long to be on a first name basis at either of them, and you'll meet some new people. The Wilde Rover Irish Pub has good live music on weekends, and Waldo's is really fun for karaoke. The Shark Club is a good dive bar with live music that won't disappoint if you like it loud. There's a lot of night life to explore once you get settled into your Kirkland apartment!

I've got dogs. What the the best places in Kirkland for being outdoors with pets?
Kirkland doesn't have a dog park yet, but people are working on it. Doesn't mean that there aren't some good places to let your dog have a run tho. Luther Burbank in Mercer Island or Marymoor near Redmond are both huge parks and well worth a drive. Of course, if you get up really early, chances are you can sneak in a run closer to town.
What neighborhoods in Kirkland are good for eating out?
Downtown Kirkland has the most restaurants to choose from within a small area. Everything from steaks to Greek places. There are good spots all over town but people like to drive up to Juanita Bay. It's nice up there and sitting by the fire and having great Italian food is why it's known as one of the best in the whole area.
What would an ideal weekend be like in Kirkland?
Begin your weekend in Kirkland with some outdoor fun. Head to the 144-acre Juanita Bay Park to check out the local wildlife or bring the family over to Houghton Beach Park for some swimming, fishing, boating, volleyball, and more. After a picnic in the park enjoy some more family fun at TechCity Bowl and Fun Center or the local amusement park, Park Place Farm. Spend the evenings scoping out the Kirkland Arts Center and the Gilmartin Gallery, or enjoy some quality shopping at Via Lago followed up with some entertainment at Laughs Comedy Club.
