    Neighborhood Guide: Magnolia

    When you are considering buying a home in the Seattle, Washington area it is important to know the differences between the many neighborhoods in the Emerald City. Magnolia is the second largest neighborhood in Seattle and is located just northwest of the Downtown district, directly adjacent to the Queen Anne neighborhood. If you are in the market for a new home in Seattle, Magnolia might be exactly what you're looking for.

    Public Transportation

    Magnolia is serviced by both public transportation agencies in Seattle, Sound Transit, and King County Metro. The Sounder commuter rail runs from Seattle to Everett and runs directly through both the Magnolia and Queen Anne neighborhoods. Bus routes are also in service and provide Magnolia residents access to the Downtown district easily. Nearly 61,000 Seattle residents utilize the bus services every day, making it one of the most popular forms of transportation in the city.


    Magnolia is one of the most family-friendly neighborhoods in Seattle. The schools in the area are top of the line; Lawton Elementary School, and Catherine Blaine Elementary and Middle Schools have been ranked as some of the best in the area. The Magnolia neighborhood is also a short 15-minute drive from the University of Washington (UW) for those who are pursuing higher education. UW has been ranked as one of the top public universities in the country. Magnolia is also home to its own branch of the Seattle Public Library System.

    Parks and Recreation

    One of the major selling points about Magnolia is Discovery park, the city's largest public park which contains nearly 12 miles of trails. In addition to Discovery Park, Magnolia houses Ella Baily Park and a 12-acre park named after the neighborhood. The Magnolia Community Center is also located in the historic neighborhood and provides residents with the ability to participate in classes like pottery and children's ballet. 

    Restaurants and Bars

    One of the things that makes Magnolia one of the best neighborhoods in Seattle to live in is its restaurant and bar scene. Several four-star eateries call Magnolia home, so whether you are in the mood for fresh seafood or Italian, Magnolia has a diverse selection of restaurants. A number of Seattle's best bars lie within the Magnolia neighborhood, making for an entertaining nightlife.
