Seattle - U District (PDF Chapter)
This is the U District chapter from Lonely Planet’s Seattle guidebook.
Head east off I-5 north of Lake Union and suddenly you’ll feel as if you’re no longer in Seattle. Named for ‘U Dub’ (what locals call the University of Washington, or UW), it feels like its own little college town.
- relive (or live) your cerebral undergraduate years on the leafy, architecturally attractive campus of the University of Washington with its art galleries, neo-Gothic library and tree-studded quad
- relive the non-cerebral part of your undergraduate days in the pubs and bars of the so-called ‘Ave’
- reading the graffiti and listen to the latest street poet at Blue Moon, the legendary counterculture dive
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping and Sports & Activities.
