"Gateway to Seward Park"
South Orcas Street has many different personalities as it winds its way across Beacon Hill east to Lake Washington. It is in an industrial at one end, from East Marginal Way through the north edge of Georgetown and up to Beacon Hill. Then it becomes residential, peppered with houses dating back to the 40s and 50s when workers at Boeing needed places to live. Finally, South Orcas heads to Lake Washington, as it provides the gateway to Seward Park. Along the way are small businesses, churches and schools - a great taste of Seattle life.
