Seattle Neighborhoods

Green Lake

"What the Central Park reservoir is to New York City, Green Lake is to Seattle, the undisputed recreational and social hub for residents. Power walk, run or Rollerblade along its asphalt path; take a class at the rowing center maintained by Seattle Parks and Recreation, or a swim in the pool near its shores. Nearby are a host of yoga studios and athletic stores like Super Jock 'n Jill."

Mad For Madison Park

Noted as one of Seattle’s most affluent neighborhoods, Madison Park is known for wide tree-lined streets, numerous walking paths, and magnificent Lake Washington view properties.

Homes in this established neighborhood do well in their blending of older stately homes and modern Northwest architecture, most of which sit between mature landscapes, and lush gardens.  Madison Park’s eclectic business district offers a balanced mix of specialty shops, eateries, and every day convenience’s.   This closely held community is loaded with family-friendly amenities, and with a number of well-appointed parks, courts, and family-supportive community groups, residents enjoy multiple venues for informal and fun-loving interaction.

Seattle summer sun attracts people from all over to Madison Park beach, which is often brimming with action and sunbathers.  It has been said that Madison Park feels like an “at-home vacation destination,” and for busy Seattle residents, this neighborhood is often just the ticket. 
I encourage anyone to make time for Madison Park this summer. Whether it's a glass of good wine, a cold beer, or a walk through the park, this neighborhood is a wonderful escape inside our sometimes hectic city.

South Lake Union planes, trains, and automobiles. Don't forget the boats!

Touted as a "the future hub for life sciences in Seattle," South Lake Union has a lot more to offer than just a fantastic view, and a meeting of the minds. Historically, the South Lake Union neighborhood offered housing for both the workers and the owners of area mills, and was primarily an industrial area.

In recent years, Seattle residents have jumped at the opportunity to be a part of this budding neighborhood community.  It is clear that the result of the economic redevelopment initiated by Seattle City Council in 2003 has worked wonders on South Lake Union.  Not only have we seen a marked increase in housing and development, but we have also enjoyed what has now grown into a popular destination for residents and visitors of nearby neighborhoods alike. A number of fabulous developments have chosen to land in South Lake Union, leaving a stylish mark on this gentrified neighborhood.  In a matter of blocks, expect to find great restaurants, gourmet groceries, boutique shops, marine resources, outdoor adventure resources, music, arts, you name it - South Lake Union either has it, or it's coming soon.
Next time you are looking for a place to land for the afternoon, pull up a chair on one of the lakes many waterside dining decks, and take it all in.

                Wonderful West Seattle

With easy access to downtown Seattle and freeways, breathtaking views of Puget Sound and the Seattle Skyline, and a vibrant and expanding shopping district, West Seattle offers residents and visitors a unique neighborhood experience.  What was once referred to as an "up-and-coming" area, West Seattle has evolved into a sought after and established 
family-friendly destination.  West Seattle residents cannot help but become deeply rooted in this wonderful community through participation in a variety of festivals and markets.  Here you will find everything between darling boutiques at The Junction to fun, eclectic and acclaimed eateries, art galleries, and specialty shops along California Avenue.  With more people opting for neighborhoods "in-city," West Seattle seems to have the "it" factor these days, as more people discover the quality of life across the bridge.

Named as the "California of Seattle," West Seattle's Alki beach is the 
place to dig your toes into a truly sandy (no, not rocky!) beach.  Whether you stay close to the shoreline, or venture up to California Ave., there are plenty of reasons to visit West Seattle.

Here are a few ideas to get you over the bridge.

A bit on the Fremont Atmosphere:

Fremont seems to be bursting these days with art galleries, vintage clothing and furniture stores, darling retail shops, and salons.  Proud to be the original home of the Red Hook Brewery (now in Woodinville), Fremont maintains it's love affair with good beer.  Here you will find several other microbreweries and pubs to enjoy the specialty brew - and most certainly great company to enjoy them with. The nightlife finds the pubs bursting with crowds of locals listening to the various bands, trios and singers that local pubs host. Fremont also has a taste for great food.  Teaming with restaurants of all types from vegan to Ethiopian or Greek to pub fare, you will not leave hungry or dissatisfied.  

Although Fremont is primarily residential, the neighborhood has recently seen quite a bit of commercial growth. Despite this construction, the neighborhood has maintained its delicate balance of bohemian culture and closely connected community comfort.
