The Queen Anne neighborhood, a district northwest of downtown, today is a mix of businesses and homes, but its history dates back to 1851 when it was settled by the Denny Party. David Denny staked a claim to the region and called his 320 acres of land “Potlatch Meadows”. Over time, Queen Anne style housing began to dominate the area leading the present name of the district.
The 1962 World’s Fair was located on lower Queen Anne and the fairgrounds are still a hub of sights including the Space Needle, Pacific Science Center and Experience Music Project (EMP). Chihuly Garden and Glass at the base of the Space Needle displays the artwork of glass artist Dale Chihuly. Additionally, the monorail terminal and KeyArena are within the fairgrounds. Additional unique items in the neighobrhood include 12 historic houses and the North Queen Anne Drive Bridge, a parabolic steel arch bridge that is a registered historic landmark. The library branch here is located in a 1914 Tudor Revival style building and is itself a Seattle landmark.
Several small parks dot the neighborhood and it is bordered by Lake Union on one side and Puget Sound on the other. Both areas offer space to relax in nice weather, or launch a boat for fun on the water. Queen Anne is also within walking distance of downtown Seattle and across the bridge from eclectic Fremont.
The Lake Washington Ship Canal is the northern border of Queen Anne and is the link between Lake Washington, Lake Union and Puget Sound. There are several marinas within the canal and Lake Union, as well as sea planes and rowing centers. A walking/biking trail runs along much of the canal starting at Salmon Bay and circling Lake Union.
Many highly rated restaurants are located in lower Queen Anne, near downtown and the Seattle Center, but many additional smaller neighborhood eateries can be found near businesses in the area. The majority of these can be found along Queen Anne Avenue, the major street through the district.
