Home of the legendary Alki Beach (credited to where Seattle was initially founded), West Seattle is the booming “small town” neighborhood situated just 15 minutes from downtown Seattle. What is sometimes referred to as a “small town away from the city” with locally owned shops lining the main road in what is called “The Junction”.
West Seattle has been booming in the last few years with new apartments and housing popping up on nearly every block. With that have come a more vibrant community and more things to do. What was once Seattle’s secret of sweeping city skyline views, beaches, local eateries, and free parking everywhere, is now an in-demand neighborhood and popular tourist destination.
