Shoreline

As Seattle’s closest northern neighborhood, Shoreline, commonly referred to as “North Seattle,” is desirable for its close proximity to Seattle and its more recent transition from a rural area to a highly populated sleeper community. In the 1880s, homesteaders used its shores to float goods south toward Seattle and residents and visitors were drawn to Echo Lake for recreation. Today, Shoreline offers a number of parks including Richmond Beach Saltwater Park and Boeing Creek Park, which offers a wonderful trail system. Residents and visitors are often found at the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden, ice arena and at annual events including Innis Arden Oktoberfest.
