"An awesome historical street just north of downtown"

Seattle originals, like Pagliacci Pizzaria and the Queen Anne Cafe, serve up some of Seattle's finest dining fare. Clubs and theaters line the lower avenue and shops, grocery stores and restaurants attract people at the top of the hill. The avenue used to be used for a counterbalance trolley that transported guests and residents to the top of the hill. Queen Anne sits just north of the city and overlooks Lake Union an the Cascade mountins to the west, Puget Sound and the Olympic mountain range to the east, the Seattle skyline and Mt. Rainier to the south and Fremont to the north. The homes are beautiful and the area was named for the Queen Anne-style of construction of most of the mansions built there. Queen Anne Avenue, just west of dead center on the hill includes a steep incline up the hill through residential neighborhoods with shops and restaurants that have become Seattle staples at the base and a fairly renovated shopping and dining section at the top of the hill. The hill also sports some beautiful gardens and parks with stunning views of the water, city and mountains.

"Queen Anne Avenue N - An Upscale Seattle"

Queen Anne Avenue North is a fantastic but busy place with the famed Queen Anne Market. Numerous shops and restaurants line this busy thoroughfare. Whether your biking, driving or walking, there is something here for everyone. Marvel at the gorgeous homes that line the street and try some couture at an outdoor cafe!

"Perfection in a street"

This is a great little quiet street with all the excitement of a city, but all the amenities and comforts of a suburb. The Space Needle is a couple minutes away, certainly within walking distance, (but there's never much traffic) and there is plenty to do for all size kids in the family. A row of gorgeous, well-kept houses with people living in them who obviously care about their homes and properties. Friendly folks who walk dogs and will always stop and chat.

"Hipster Street w/Lots to Do!"

One of the best things about Queen Anne Avenue N is the MarQueen Hotel. If visiting Seattle, this is the place to stay. Beware, though: no stairs! Surrounding the hotel are a billion places to eat, and the Space Needle is just a few blocks away. Queen Anne Ave is a bustling street with great cafes, including Seattle's "best" (as voted by Zagat), Caffe Ladro. It is centrally located, and convenient for tourists who want to get a taste of the different historic and well-known neighborhoods of this beautiful city.
