Known locally as “The Junction” Here West Seattle community connects for coffee, shopping, business activities, doctor visits, dinner, drinks and camaraderie. Another commercial sector is situated near the intersection of SW Alaska St. and Fauntleroy Way SW, just east of this area.

The Admiral neighborhood is situated in the north part of West Seattle and is one of quite affluent neighborhoods in seattle. The historic Admiral Theater is the major landmark of this area. West Seattle offers ferry service to Vashon Island and the Kitsap Peninsula year around, and during the summer, to downtown Seattle.

For the outdoor enthusiast, Alki Beach is the biggest attraction to West Seattle. In summer whether you want for sun bath or watch a winter storm roll in, Alki Beach is a great place to view Seattle from a different perspective.

There are plenty of recreational opportunities nearby,  including the heated saltwater pool in Lincoln Park; Schmitz Preserve Park, plenty of hiking and nature trails; and a four-mile trail running the length of Longfellow Creek.

Along the southwest slope, Fauntleroy is a private residential area that offers its residents unmatched views of the Puget Sound, Vashon Island, and the Olympic Mountains and Peninsula. Delridge is known as the industrial area of West Seattle. It is located in the southeast quarter.

West Seattle offers a nice mix of rental housing options. From apartment and condominiums to rental houses, this area offers a variety of housing types to choose from. Because West Seattle is less convenient to downtown than some of the other close-in neighborhoods, rental housing is a little more affordable. The exceptions are properties with big views or properties located right by Alki Beach.
