"Cherry Street Living- it's ALL about Seattle!"

Cherry Street is a main artery linking in to Pioneer Square, the original settlement area for Seattle- but there is nothing old and dusty about this location! There is plenty of original charm, especially architecturally.

Whether you are a walker or a driver, be prepared for the major inclines as you head away from 1st Ave and towards the expressway. Cherry leads right to I-5 which is great for commuting purposes if you choose to live in any of the residential apartment or condo type buildings. Most buildings along Cherry are either original as they have stood for decades or entirely gutted and re-newed.

One of the benefits of living along Cherry is its link to Pinoeer Square which is situated close to the water front and is home to extensive shopping and food options. Some negatives is certainly the traffic that will inexplicably jam up this area as people head out of the city or are trying to find their way over to the football or baseball stadiums. The overall area though is ALL Seattle and would be a great place to get a real sense of the city.

"Cherry Street is oh so sweet"

I travel to Seattle at the very least once a year. While Cherry street is pretty neat, I like it more for its close proximity to the original heart of Seattle. Pioneer Square is just around the corner. In and of itself it is a very cool park, often I have seen singers, musicians, and street performers here. Even better the Cherry Street's Bakeman Cafe is the nearby Seattle underground tour! Absolutely amazing and the history one can learn about Seattle will blow you away! For example, Seattle was raised 12 feet above its current level! That means that the Seattle underground is actually the sealed up original city! Check for purple glass in the sidewalks, below them is the orginal sidewalk that used the clear (now purple) glass as skylighting!
