"Great dining, quaint shops, very clean and green"
The location of the International District is convenient to highways, downtown and sporting events at Safeco and Quest Fields, but you wouldn't really know it by the laid back attitude of the residents and visitors of the area. Still technically a part of downtown Seattle, the International District is probably one of the least populated and traveled areas in the city, but it shouldn't be. The food at the restaurants in the International District is amazing. The area is very pedestrian friendly and the streets are so authentically charming with cultural signs, statuary and structures that you feel transported to another world in comparison with the rest of the city. Surprisingly clean for an area that has a noticeable lack of outdoor trash cans, the International District really shouldn't be missed by tourists or locals.
