Blue Ridge, often dubbed as North Beach, is a beach-side neighborhood in the northern part of Seattle, Washington. The place got its name from the amazing blue waters in the waterfront ridge to the northwest of the suburbs. The NW 96th Street is one of the major access routes to get to this place. Two other routes include the Esplanade and Blue Ridge Drive where the marina beachfront is totally visible. You can easily spot the yachts and speedboats racing on the calm, blue waters of Puget Sound Bay. The amazing beaches are great places for basking under the fleeting rays of the sun while enjoying the ample light that escapes the covers of thick clouds that loom over Washington.
