With its downtown hugging the breathtaking shoreline of Lake Washington, Kirkland enjoys the perfect venue for arts, entertainment, and recreation.  Dozens of galleries, wineries, restaurants, a high end commercial district, and a performing arts center hum with creative energy.  And yet the town stretches into the surrounding hills, capturing ancient conifer forests and achingly beautiful views for its thirteen unique neighborhoods, as well as hundreds of acres of greenspace for its 55 trails, parks, and other recreational facilities.

No wonder visitors flock here for the 7 Hills of Kirkland Cycling Events, the Kirkland Artists Studio Tour, Summerfest and the Summer Concert Series, and Oktoberfest.  It’s easy to see why Money Magazine designated Kirkland as one of the Top Ten Places to Live in the country.
