This is the downtown neighborhood where all the cool things happen all the time. There are plenty of apartments and condos in this downtown Seattle district and there are also over 100 restaurants, bars, and fast-food spots. If your apartment is in this district, you will never be bored. Popular attractions include:
- Ride the Ducks tours that take you around the city by land and by sea — get ready for when they lurch into the water
- The Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum lets your imagination run wild as you explore different types of stars: those of rock-and-roll, and those that twinkle from the night sky with the promise of adventure
- The Seattle Center Monorail provides a convenient link to various parts of the city, and it’s also super fun to ride; plus it’s useful for locals and not just tourists

When you pay a visit to Seattle apartments in these neighborhoods, prepare yourself for the fact that there will be tourists around; but, your apartment will likely be hidden away around a corner from all the action, which you’ll come to appreciate after living there for a while. If you love people, though, this is a great place for you to end up.
