Even though it’s one of the quieter neighborhoods in Seattle, don’t let Magnolia fool you – it has a steadfast, inclusive community that is always embracing newcomers. The area is set apart to the west of Queen Anne, accessible via the Magnolia Bridge and two connection points in Interbay and Fisherman’s Terminal. Magnolia’s mainstreet is lined with shops, cafes, community centers, and more. Watch a little league baseball game and wander over for ice cream and coffee from local shops. Spend a day exploring the almost 12 miles of walking trails in Discovery Park, with its iconic lighthouse and Fort Lawton houses within the 534-acre park on the shores of Puget Sound. Pick up fresh fish, brought in that day from Alaskan commercial fishing boats, and bring it home for dinner. Magnolia has everything you need year-round.
