Helpful Tips for Navigating Seattle

Seattle is generally laid out in a grid pattern, but it also has its share of winding streets that can run at odd angles. The north-south streets are labeled "avenues" while the east-west ones are "streets."

A trick to help you remember that all Seattle Avenues run north and south is to think of University Avenue NE. It's the main street that runs through the University District neighborhood and is known as "The Ave" by Seattle residents. So, remember, "The Ave" runs north and south, just like all Seattle Avenues.

When you're driving to a destination in Seattle, be sure to have the exact address on hand because navigating through the city could be confusing otherwise. Seattle streets have seven different directional sectors: N, S, E, W, NE, NW, and SW. "Street" addresses will have the directional sector before the street name (NE 52nd Street) while "Avenue" addresses have the sector written after the name (52nd Avenue NE).

Here are a few other facts to remember about finding your way around Seattle:

  • Downtown streets don't have directional designation
  • Interstate 5 and Route 99 are the only streets in Seattle that run uninterrupted from north to south
  • "Ways" are long, diagonal roads, "Drives" are circular routes and "Courts" are a block long
  • Be mindful of pedestrians; Seattle has been rated one of the most walkable cities in the U.S.

Attractions in The Seattle Area

Once you understand how to navigate through Seattle, you can check out some of the sights. The city's most well-known landmark is the Space Needle, where an elevator ride to the top of the 605-foot building takes just 41 seconds! When you come back down, you can hop on the Seattle Center Monorail and take it downtown to the Westlake Center for some shopping. You can also check out the Pike Place Market, the Experience Music Project Museum or the Seattle Great Wheel.
