Magnolia

Sitting across from Queen Anne Hill, Magnolia is a small idyllic community known for its stunning views and small-town familiarity. 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. Not exactly right. 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 or a spur-of-the-moment community outreach event. Magnolia contains Discovery Park, Seattle’s largest park, where birdwatchers can see herons, eagles, and falcons.

A high percentage of married folks reside in Magnolia, and many of them have children. There is a nice age spread in the neighborhood; unlike some other places in the city, you won’t be the minority if you’re over the age of 50 or under the age of 10. No matter what the age or marital status, though, most residents have something in common: a high income.
