"Pretty, but questionable area"

Ambaum Blvd. SW stretches from White Center to the heart of Burien. Offering gentle curves on a ribbon of road, the maintenance is above par compared to other streets in the city. The boulevard is lined with evergreens and leafy trees in most areas, though there are a couple of several-block sections in White Center and Burien where only businesses, shops and gas stations grow. The residential neighborhoods off of Ambaum can be serene and peaceful, or a little bit scary, so watch where you're going and make sure you have good directions. There are a couple of parks close by, displaying more greenery to the area. Not very rich in night life, but there are some shops and businesses that can't be found anywhere else in the city.
