The University District, more commonly known as the U-District, is the area surrounding the University of Washington. There is a youthful, fun vibe around this neighborhood that is full of casual cafes, pubs, and theaters. In the spring, the cherry trees blossom, the green lawn comes to life, and the University of Washington is a picture-perfect dream. “The Ave” on University Way is a popular destination for visitors and students, where there are many local cafes, bars, and unique shops. If you’re in town in the fall, catch a football game at Husky Stadium and get in the spirit with a unique tailgating experience.
