Seattle's Queen Anne Neighborhood News Blog



About Queen Anne

Named Seattle’s best neighborhood by Seattle Magazine two years in a row, Queen Anne is a beautiful, family-friendly community. On Seattle’s second-tallest hill, Upper Queen Anne features sprawling homes with sweeping views and charming shops along a peaceful, tree-lined avenue. Lower Queen Anne is a quickly-growing, bustling neighborhood that’s home to the Space Needle, KeyArena and Experience Music Project, to name a few.

Just like many sought-after neighborhoods north of downtown, growth is a critical issue. New condos line the west and east sides of The Hill, and Lower Queen Anne is beginning to look a lot like Belltown. But the top of Queen Anne has retained much of its small-town charm.

About the Editor

After spending my youth moving around the country as a military brat, I moved to Seattle in 1994 and have considered it my adopted hometown ever since – not surprising since I’ve lived here far longer than anywhere else. I live on Queen Anne and love our vibrant neighborhood with its history, walkability, parks, views, businesses, and neighbors. I’m here to stay!
