Home of the legendary Alki Beach (credited to where Seattle was initially founded), West Seattle is the booming “small town” neighborhood situated just 15 minutes from downtown Seattle. What is sometimes referred to as a “small town away from the city” with locally owned shops lining the main road in what is called “The Junction”.
West Seattle has been booming in the last few years with new apartments and housing popping up on nearly every block. With that have come a more vibrant community and more things to do. What was once Seattle’s secret of sweeping city skyline views, beaches, local eateries, and free parking everywhere, is now an in-demand neighborhood and popular tourist destination.
Getting to West Seattle
Getting to West Seattle
Situated southwest of the city of Seattle, and surrounded mostly by water, West Seattle is the perfect place to see views of downtown when facing east, and amazing sunsets over the mountains and sea when facing west.
Getting around West Seattle
There are multiple ways to get to downtown or other parts of the city if you don’t have a car in West Seattle. Most of the buses from The Junction take you right in the heart of downtown or you can take the Water Taxi from Alki to the waterfront of downtown Seattle and see sweeping views of the skyline on your way. There are also ferries that can take you to Vashon Island.
Things to do in West Seattle
Where to Eat
Head over to The Junction located on California Ave SW and be treated to some unique eateries lining the streets. Or if you want to watch the sunset while dining, head to Alki where you can get fresh seafood just across the street from the beach. Still not satisfied? Try the Admiral Junction where some new restaurants have been popping up recently.
Things to do
In the warmer months, the Junction hosts a weekly Farmers Market on Sundays and a Summer Fest, perfect for all ages. On Alki Beach, you can rent kayaks, bikes, or just set up a bonfire at night. West Seattle is also home to a greenbelt, and you can hike around the beautiful Lincoln Park (also a great place to watch the sunset). The Junction offers great places to shop, or you can catch the newest flick at the historic Admiral Theatre.
