Named for the University of Washington, the areas central attraction, the University District (or, affectionately, the "U" District), has highbrow cultural attractions and a motley mix of retail shops and restaurants, that appeal to the University's student population. Within the beautiful, castle-like façade of the University of Washington campus is the Burke Museum (a natural history museum packed with fossils from the Northwest), the Henry Art Gallery, and the Meany Theater. Outside of the campus, on "The Ave," one can find fun vintage clothing shops and affordable ethnic cuisine.

North of the University District, life resumes to normal in the quiet suburban communities of Ravenna, Laurelhurst, and Northgate.
