Explore Magnolia, Seattle
Because it's on a peninsula, Magnolia has a secluded feel. Looking at the neighborhood from outside, you might think there isn't much more there than houses and a marina. Wrong! The area around McGraw Street and 34th Avenue W is a little pocket of activity, with a Walk Score rivaling that of Fremont or Greenlake. A glance at the neighborhood's blog shows that there's always something going on here, be it a farmer's market, the yearly SummerFest celebration, a free nature walk at Discovery Park, or a spur-of-the-moment community outreach event.
