With a beautiful backdrop and a culturally diverse city, Seattle offers its residents a series of distinctive neighborhoods along the water's edge. Broadview features quiet living, a canopy of trees, huge lots and a country feeling to its populace. Blue Ridge is a tiny, relatively affluent corner of Seattle, developed during the Depression by William Boeing for some of his airplane company executives. A small family-oriented town, this hillside community boasts views of Puget Sound and is divided by ravines and creeks. The Crown Hill neighborhood offers ethnic restaurants and super stores where dairy farms once occupied the hillside. With its peacefully, quiet and tended yards, it?s a great place to raise a family. East of Seattle North Beach and south of Blue Ridge, Olympic Manor was once a golf course. Developed into a residential community in the 1950s, a neighborhood rule restricts the height of trees to be no taller than houses, boasting beautiful horizons and an expansive sky. Bitter Lake is a lovely urban lake rich in wildlife, surrounded by houses, apartments and condominiums. A short distance from downtown, Bitter Lake offers a country, peaceful oasis for its residents.
The residents agree that Seattle?s combination of urban sophistication and easygoing charm, with access to spectacular outdoor recreation opportunities make it a great place to live and play. A major cultural center, its sophistication is evident in its architecture, fashion, and arts. Surrounding Seattle are the glorious mountains of the Olympic and Cascades ranges and the seafood-rich waters of the Pacific Ocean. Snoqualmie Pass attracts downhill skiers, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowboarders. To the west of the city is Puget Sound, where sailors, kayakers, scuba divers, jet skiers, and anglers enjoy the water. To the west, the Olympic Mountains provide countless activities for adventure seekers.
Attractions in the Seattle area are as varied as its populace. One can catch a professional sports team at a Mariners or Seahawks game, head up the Space Needle for 360-degree city views or take in one of Seattle Center's many ground-level attractions such as the Pacific Science Center, the Children's Museum, the Experience Music Project, or the Science Fiction Experience museum.
