About the neighborhood

Diverse Capitol Hill is packed with hip bars, eateries and gay clubs, plus laid-back coffee shops and indie stores. Volunteer Park, atop the hill in a historic mansion district, has walking trails, a plant conservatory, panoramic city views and the art deco Asian Art Museum. It abuts Lake View Cemetery, where the city’s founders (and Bruce Lee) are buried. Kids play in the wading pool at smaller Cal Anderson Park.

Baker; south of Capitol Hill, and north of Rainier Valley. Historically, the Central District has been one of Seattle's most racially and ethnically diverse neighborhoods, and was once the center of Seattle's black community and a major hub of African-American businesses.

About the Neighborhood

The Ravenna and Wedgwood neighborhoods takes all the best parts of the urban living, mixes them with the cozy peacefulness of suburbia and throws in a dash or two of wilderness to keep you on your toes. I think the best examples of our neighborhood's surprising combo are things like the Wedgwood Boulder tucked into a quiet little street that sneaks up on you when you're out walking your dog; the original P-Patch that you catch a glimpse of riding your bike up one of our biggest streets; and the Ravenna ravine, a wilderness canyon complete with coyotes sitting just below some of our commercial areas

About the Neighborhood

Magnolia is a quiet, walkable community. It feels like a small town 15 minutes away from downtown. Young families have made a big comeback here in the last few years. Ella Bailey Park is right behind the soon to be reopened Magnolia Elementary to support the influx of kids. We have incredible views of the Puget Sound, the walking trail on the Magnolia Bluffs has great sunsets views over Bainbridge Island as well as a stunning view of Mount Rainier when sunny. Discovery Park is the crown jewel of our community and people visit from all over Seattle. We have other great parks like Ella Bailey too with a wonderful view of the cruise terminals, waterfront and downtown.

About the neighborhood

The University of Washington campus and the surrounding area is a magnet for the twenty-something crowd in Seattle. But don’t be fooled—you don’t have to be a student to enjoy this lively and funky neighborhood. Surrounding the University of Washington, the University District is an eclectic mix of urban shopping areas; historic homes and architecture; and great cafes, pubs, restaurants, and theaters. The “U District” has a youthful and relaxed feel with lots of dining and shopping deals to take advantage of.

Much of the charm of the U District can be found in simply strolling the neighborhood. The University of Washington’s gorgeous grounds include historic buildings, gardens, sprawling green spaces and, in spring, blossoming cherry trees. “The Ave,” (University Way) is a popular gathering place, with lots of indie eateries and funky shops. And on 17th Avenue N.E., a tree-lined lane known as Greek Row, passersby can admire the stately mansions that house UW’s fraternities and sororities.
