The U-District is a great place to go if you're hungry. There are some very good Indian restaurants, as well as good places for vegetarian food. Multiple places to find good coffee. And the people watching is always fun.

The University District is, not surprisingly, adjacent to the University of Washington's main campus. It's collection of shops and restaurants has the classic college town feel.

The Seattle university district is a standard U district with a big variety of stores, restaurants, clubs, cinema, etc. The University Bookstore is on the main street, University Way, and there are galleries and museums in the adjacent university campus.

We found the area to be littered and dirty. Traffic was outrageous! Parking was difficult to find! Street people were everywhere! This neighborhood needs cleaning!
