Originality shines in southern Seattle neighborhood

The neighborhoods of Seattle are as diverse as the residents living there, and Columbia City is no different. Homebuyers searching for real estate in Seattle may find the originality and eclectic range of options in Columbia City to be suited for them.

Rapid gentrification, easily walkable streets and the lovely historic shops of Columbia City are among several reasons why the area is highly attractive to residents new and old. Commercial businesses are few, and original cafes and restaurants are at nearly every corner. As for seasonal entertainment, the neighborhood has limitless options when it comes to festivals, from the sought-after Wednesday farmers market to BeatWalk - involving live music at local businesses on the second Friday - Columbia City is always stirring up new activities.

Columbia City’s "Restaurant Row" has something to please anyone. Just a short walk from the Link Light Rail, the row boasts dozens of dining and drinking options.

Columbia City Ale House, located on Rainier Avenue, serves fresh food and unique local and international brews, proving not all “bar food” is fried. Another mainstay in the area is the Northwest’s first certified Neapolitan pizzeria, Tutta Bella, which neighbors the Ale House. Authentic wood-burning ovens heat up pizza and calzones to perfection, ideally paired with a refreshing italian wine or beer.
