Seattle Neighborhoods
Book Now


For the traveler looking to experience Seattle from a different perspective, busy downtown streets can give way to quiet glens, ambling parks and rich cultural heritage. The city’s neighborhoods and surrounding communities mingle amid 500-foot hills, lakes and waterways - and their personalities are as diverse as the landscape. From free-spirited Fremont to stately Queen Anne Hill, the Scandinavian charm of Ballard to the melting pot of cultures in Southeast Seattle. These neighborhoods are easily accessible from the city’s center via public transportation, rental car, taxi, tour boat, water taxi or, in some cases, sea kayak.
