Seattle’s Best Beaches & Waterside Parks

Seattle’s shoreline, made of 147.52 miles of fresh water and 53.38 miles of salt water (200.90 miles total!), leaves a lot to discover any time of year. In late spring, summer and early fall you’ll find beachgoers getting their tan on and splashing in the waves. From late fall to early spring, joggers dash along the sand while others sit and watch the ferries shuffle people across the bay. And can you imagine how...

Seattle Neighborhood Spotlights: U-District

You know that the University of Washington has to be big if a whole neighborhood is named after it. At almost 50,000 undergraduate and graduate students combined, we’d say that’s big enough and then some! The young population of the University District, also known as the U-District, makes it one of the most happening places to be. You’ll find what you might expect: great bars and restaurants for nightlife, quiet cafés for a place...

Seattle Neighborhood Spotlights: Ballard

The history of Ballard is pretty amazing when you consider that William Rankin Ballard (the neighborhood’s namesake) ended up owning the land because he LOST a coin toss.

William, who already owned the land next to it, “won” it as the loser… but SURPRISE! This turned out to be an awesome thing! See, railways are an...

And no, it’s not *just* because Google Maps’ office is in Fremont (ahem, ahem)… obviously it’s because Seattle is the best city around!

Seattle Neighborhood Spotlights: Capitol Hill

If you hear “Capitol Hill” and you think politics- think again! Our favorite Capitol Hill (Cap Hill for short) sits right east of downtown in the heart of Seattle and is quite different from its Washington DC counterpart. Upon arrival in this neighborhood, you’ll immediately notice the rainbow of colors painted on the crosswalks as a welcome sign for the city’s largest LGBTQ community. It’s a neighborhood for everyone as people with colored hair...
