Although the scenes in this area have changed over the past 15-20 years, there is still an enjoyable dingy quality to this area. Gentified store fronts mix with trashy run down stores barely hanging on. UDub is magnicifient though.

The UW is a gorgeous campus and not to be missed. Visit the Fry and Henry museums. The year round farmer’s market on Saturday is excellent. Lots of great ethnic food to be found. Be careful on the Ave.

The U district caters mainly to the UW students as the campus is next to it. There are lots of food outlets and the prices are rather reasonable. There are some interesting shops here too.

Cool shops, great food options. Check out Morsel's biscuit shop (name explains it all) and Sureshot coffee if you like rock, pinball, and good coffee.

Dirty and graffiti everywhere. I guess it'd be cool if I was a younger college student, but as an adult who lives in a beautiful larger city, I was dismayed at how dirty this area was.

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.
