Seattle - The CD, Madrona & Madison Park (PDF Chapter)
This is the CD, Madrona & Madison Park chapter from Lonely Planet’s Seattle guidebook.
Most non-residents come to one of the three spread-out neighborhoods between Capitol Hill and Lake Washington for a specific reason: incredible Ethiopian food in the CD, brunch in Ma-drona, or the beach at Madison Park and French food in Madison Valley.
- follow the old trolley route down E Madison St to original Seattle seaside resort Madison Park Beach for a game of Frisbee, a brave dip in the lake and some wholesome food
- learn about Seattle’s long, but often overlooked, history of African American heritage at the Northwest African American Museum
- find French, Italian and other European flavors on the taste-heavy commercial strip of 34th Ave in Madrona
- restaurants & accommodation
