The U District as it´s known its a nice neighborhood to walk and get nostalgia to your college days. It has funky stores and cheap restaurants, also more trendy ones.

There is so much to see and do here which you would expect as it surrounds the University of Washington Campus. Lots of great restaurants with every type of food you can imagine, tons of retail and like the food scene, a bit of everything, the Burke museum, sports, parks and so much more. There always seems to be events... More

The U District is full of food places for the mighty hungry! Students hanging out, street music and conversations to be had. And the wonderful smell of Pacalolo because now it's legal! Reminded me of home, Pahoa, Hawaii. Recreation store clerks friendly and don't make you feel like a criminal ;) But I especially love the conversations you'll hear just... More

University Way, known locally as 'the ave' was a lively place in the 60s and 70s, but is now pretty shabby and home manly to inexpensive ethnic restaurants catering to the large student population at nearby. I version of Washington. Numerous busses run to and from the Ave to downtown and capital hill, and the age is a great place... More

What I like about the U district near University of Washington is you can always find a decent place to eat at a reasonable price. There is a wide array of eating places, mostly small. Each time I visit the area, I always find a new place to get a quick bite.There are interesting places to shop, especially second hand... More

As expected near a major university, there are lots of shops, restaurants and pubs surrounding the university. Lots of energy generated from the thousands of students that roam the area. An interesting place to observe the diversity and antics of the UW students. Prices are nothing to get excited about though. I'm actually surprised that many of the restaurants are... More

The only thing really going for this Seattle neighborhood is its proximity to the University of Washington. If you are visiting the U-Dub, then you may want to walk around this area. University Way is the heart of the district and is what many consider to be the entire district. It features cheap eateries (lots of Asian), coffee shops, clothing... More

My sister and I spent a whole afternoon here during our trip to Seattle. Good thrift shopping and plenty of variety in restaurants. Make sure you visit UW campus.
