University / Laurelhurst

The aptly named University District neighborhood surrounds the University of Washington campus but it’s not just for students.  The U-District, as the locals call it, is a lively part of the city that features 2 shopping districts.  Stroll down funky and fun University Avenue, or go up-scale and visit University Village.  Adjacent to the U-District is the lovely lake front Laurelhurst neighborhood. You’ll find large homes with expansive views and a quiet neighborhood feel.  A study in contrasting lifestyles:  Seattle’s University District and Laurelhurst neighborhoods.
