Welcome to the Magnolia/Queen Anne District!
Located just north of downtown, the Queen Anne neighborhood encompasses both a dense urban area known as Uptown and a more residential area known as Queen Anne Hill. It boasts many regional draws including Seattle Center, the theatre district, and Kerry Park. There are vibrant business districts along Queen Anne Avenue – in Uptown and the top of the hill featuring an eclectic blend of restaurants and specialty shops. Queen Anne hill draws many families to live there due to numerous public amenities. There are schools, a community center, pool, library, numerous parks, and a weekly summer farmer’s market.
The Magnolia neighborhood occupies a hilly peninsula northwest of downtown. It is mostly a residential area, with a main business district along McGraw, a.k.a. “the Village,” which is home to many specialty stores and professional services, some of Seattle's top restaurants, and industrial and marine services. Magnolia also has many public amenities such as a community center, pool, library, two public schools, and a weekly summer farmer’s market. Discovery Park covers a good portion of the area, which has numerous hiking trails and expansive views of Puget Sound. Adjacent to Discovery Park is West Point, featuring the West Point Lighthouse, which was built in 1881 and is the oldest lighthouse in the area. Walking trails descend from the park to two miles (3 km) of beach and the lighthouse.
