Rainier Beach

GET TO KNOW Rainier Beach

At the north and south ends of Seattle, neighborhoods often get referred to in a cluster. As they are mostly residential and share small pockets of commercial activity. This is the case with Rainier Beach, which people use to refer also to Rainier View, Dunlap, and Othello. These neighborhoods include many mid-century homes and apartment complexes in its central corridors around Rainier Avenue. Larger properties and homes line Seward Park Drive, nearest the shores of Lake Washington. Strip malls provide easy access to groceries and services, but one also finds many independent markets full of spices, injera, and lentils catering to a large Ethiopian population. Last but not least, the neighborhood is home to Kubota Gardens. One of the city's most exquisite parks, created in a style that fuses Japanese garden techniques and native flora. Seattle residents who have not checked out Rainier Beach are missing out on some of the city's most unique experiences.
