Near the west shore of Lake Washington, Seattle resembles a giant wedding cake, rising tier upon tier—or, more accurately, hill upon hill. From a boat anchored offshore, it might look as though builders had piled house upon house. Somehow these dwellings all manage to cling to these treasured sites with a view. This walk past many of the grandest homes in the city proceeds up each topographical level, from the lakeside mansions on McGilvra Boulevard, uphill through posh Madison Park, where even the supermarket is carpeted, to turn-of-the-20th-century mansions erected in Washington Park by wealthy pioneers. Special attractions: Estates, gardens, restaurants, upscale shops.
