"Slow paced with a splash of feelings of from home"
Madrona could be one of Seattle's best kept secrets. It is located just to the west of Lake Washington in between SR 520 and I-90. It is a relaxed, slower pace, little peaceable kingdom that is just full of ethnicity and a home grown feel. Walking along 34th street gives you a really good impression of Madrona. There are lots of local shops and eateries (small cafes) along the street. Here you can grab some lunch and take it with you to one of the many Madrona parks. Most of the walking trails in and around Madrona offer breathtaking views of Lake Washington.
