The location of the Magnolia neighborhood (map) in Seattle feels like a secluded island. Three bridges give you access to Magnolia, just west of Queen Anne, north of Downtown, and south of the Chittenden Locks in Ballard. This unique part of Seattle is on a natural peninsula, and the lack of major city thoroughfares through the neighborhood helps Magnolia retain in friendly quaint, atmosphere. Magnolia is part of the Seattle School District.

Along West McGraw Street is the main shopping area and the Magnolia trees that give this area its name. The naming was actually a mistake. Captain Vancouver recorded the Madrona trees that dot the bluffs near the water as being Magnolia trees when he was journeying on the Puget Sound. Being situated near the water means that there is abundant natural beauty in this area. Magnolia homes are famous for being among the most expensive, and many have incredible views. Owners of Magnolia homes love the park at the south end of the neighborhoods. Anyone can come here, though, and use the picnic tables and tennis courts.

120605-A-DT641-002The largest park in the city can be found in this area of Seattle. Owners of Magnolia homes often go to the 534-acre Discovery Park. Here, you
can wander the almost 12 miles of walking trails through waterfront hills, and rugged beaches with views of the Olympic Mountains. Most of the shoreline of Discovery Park faces the southwest, so this is a great place to watch the sun set over Puget Sound. While it has only been here since 1973, Discovery Park is now an important part of the area. Fort Lawton is still within the boundaries of the park, and this is where some military families are housed.

Another landmark of this neighborhood is the Palisade restaurant. As you walk up the steps of this Magnolia restaurant, you will realize that you’re in for a real treat. There is an all you can eat pancake and tropical fruit buffet, but it is great for lunch and dinner as well. The Sunday brunch here is the most popular Magnolia restaurant in the area. In addition the Palisade, there are many tasty local restaurants in the Magnolia area to chose from.

Far from the bustle of downtown and the busy pace of other Seattle neighborhoods, Magnolia is a place the offers you tranquility and scenic views. Lighthouse at sunset, Seattle, WashingtonWhile only three bridges connect it, this area of Seattle is an inextricable part of Seattle life. From a fine Magnolia restaurant to the hours of fun at Discovery Park, Magnolia will show you a taste of the good life in the Pacific Northwest.
