Neighborhood Spotlight on South Lake Union

South Lake Union seen a lot of change over the last decade. (Case in point: The neighborhood’s sometimes called “Amazonia,” after our local tech giant, but was once mostly known as Cascade.)

In recent years, South Lake Union has become synonymous with Seattle’s tech industry. But there’s more to the neighborhood than blue badges and shiny new buildings.

Our latest neighborhood spotlight series takes you behind the scenes at some of the area’s quirkiest establishments, from a 70-year-old trophy shop to a community space that caters to the builders, sewers, and designers among us. We also got out on the water to learn about dragon boating and sampled some of the neighborhood’s swankiest cocktails.

We hope the series inspires you to see the neighborhood in a whole new light.
