GET TO KNOW Columbia City
Columbia City's combination of cultural and economic diversity, its organized community presence, its charming main street and great restaurants have earned it a reputation for being one of Seattle's best neighborhoods. It is gradually becoming more dense, but still has plenty of single family homes. Eating out is easy, but thanks to it's acclaimed butcher (Bob's Quality Meats), Columbia City Bakery and the Columbia City Farmer's Market, it's a perfect place for those who thrive in the kitchen, too. Getting outside is easy, with parks and activity fields near the main strip (Rainier Ave) and Seward Park just a short drive away, while the Columbia City Light Rail station connects one quickly to downtown.
