University District hotels
The University District is a collection of neighbourhoods in Seattle, WA that are named for their close proximity to the University of Washington. Once an area of vast farmland, the area quickly began to change after the arrival of the University of Washington occurred just two years after the district was annexed to the city. The large population of students turned the different neighbourhoods of the University District into miniature versions of American urban areas with a bohemian feel. Restaurants and bars tend to cater to students and there are plenty of great places to see live music.
- Come to Seattle, WA in May for the annual University District Street Fair, when the neighbourhoods come alive with colourful parades, street food and plenty of adult beverages.
- Visit the University District Farmer’s Market, the first and biggest in all of Seattle, WA to buy amazing fresh produce and products that are all made by local farmers.
- Have a pint in the historic Blue Moon Tavern, an iconic, counterculture hangout since the 1930’s whose regulars have included writers like Tom Robbins, Theodore Roethke and Allen Ginsberg to name a few.
Seattle, WA has great public transportation that makes it easy to get to the University District. The best way to get there from downtown is to take Metro Transit bus routes 71, 72, 73, or 74 that all go between downtown and the University District. If you are driving a car you should take the I-5 and get off at one of the 45th -50th street exits. If you are going to drive be warned that parking can be hard to find and if you plan to park on the campus of the university it is very expensive.
