Welcome to West Seattle

West Seattle is located, well, at the westernmost point of the city of Seattle, and offers spectacular views of the Olympic Mountains to the west and the Cascade Range to the east. This historic neighborhood is composed of several smaller micro-neighborhoods, including Admiral, Fauntleroy, and Delridge. The thread that ties them all together? People march to the beat of their own drum here, and don’t seem to mind being connected to Seattle mainly by bridge. This slightly rebellious streak makes for a fun, unique neighborhood unlike any other. This self-suffcient attitude is what makes West Seattle a great place to live — you could leave, but with such excellent amenities, dining options, and beautiful parks, you might not even want to.

What to Expect

West Seattle is most accurately summed up as a “small town with big city conveniences." Residents enjoy easy access to grocery stores, shops, and schools by foot, and a well-connected public transportation system for everywhere else. People here are down-to-earth, tend to dress casually, and are very friendly. Recent developments have locals comparing it to an up-and-coming Ballard, with a beach-town twist.

What to Love 

The intersection of Alaska Street and California Avenue serves as West Seattle’s downtown, and it’s where you can find a week’s worth of shopping, dining, concerts, and more. It is affectionately called “The Junction," or sometimes “Alaska Junction," and is chock-full of the most unique, drool-inducing eateries you’ve ever seen. For an extraordinary selection of tap beers and bottles, The Beer Junction is a must-visit. This tap house features over 1,300 types of cold beer and an equally chilled atmosphere. If it’s something sweet, buttery, and flaky you’re after, Bakery Nouveau is the place to be. We hear the twice baked chocolate croissant is divine.
