Best View of Someplace Other Than Downtown

Sunset Avenue

There is no more aptly named road in the city than Sunset Avenue in West Seattle's Admiral District. Aside from peekaboo views of Queen Anne and downtown as it bends toward California Avenue, Sunset mostly faces west, high over the sound, allowing passersby to take in the islands, mountains, and peninsulas beyond. And, of course, sunsets—on days when you can actually see the sun. It is the perfect street to remind Seattleites that weathering gray and drizzly days is ultimately worth it. MIKE SEELY
