"Seattle street with a lot of diversity"

30th Avenue is somewhat residential and partially not in some areas. The street is nice, not so busy, except when you approach some of the main thoroughfares like East Cherry Street to the north or East Yesler Way to the south. The street is lengthy but doesn't lead to the water like most of the other streets in the area.

Depending on the location along 30th Avenue, home prices do vary. Some range in the 500K along the 800 and 900 block and can reach close to a million by the time you reach the 3000 block. There is a large cemetary known as Forest Lawn Cemetary along the southwest portion of the of 30th Avenue and between the 6000 and 7000 block. One of the highest rated preschools in Seattle is also located along this street and is known as the Chelsea House Montessori Pre-School.

"Number Thirty in a City Well Known for Numbered Streets"

30th Avenue travels through most of South Seattle. It resides between all the well known numbered streets that run South through Seattle and end near the ocean. Of course that puts it between 29th Avenue and 31st Avenue. If you were to travel down this street it cannot really be put into a classification of its own. It is considered a main travel route and changes from scenic wooded views to residential neighborhoods, then busy intersections filled with bustling traffic. The unique difference for 30th Avenue is that it does not go to the ocean like the other numbered streets but ends abruptly on its own and you would be forced to turn left or right onto East Madison and enter a beautiful wooded habitat known as Washington Park Arboretum, a beautiful preserve that covers over seventy wild miles and ends at the ocean.
