"Quaint area not far from downtown"
W. Harrison Street has the feel of a small town, not far from a big city. For the Queen Anne area, it's a little busier than the residential areas on the hill, but it has quite a bit to offer. Ending at Elliott Ave on the water and Seattle Center to the east, this tiny 5 1/2 block street has some remnants of Seattle small business, cool apartment buildings and convenient access to the city, the waterfront and the events at Seattle Center. And a neighborhood wouldn't be complete without a Tully's and Starbucks battling it out within a couple of blocks from each other. Like most Seattle streets, the city tends trees and flowers planted in the public areas, giving Seattle its 'nature feel' even when in the heart of downtown. Public transportation is plentiful in this area, so residents and tourists don't have to battle the city traffic and expensive parking, though there is on-street parking in this area.
