A Little About Westwood Village

The area around the popular and convenient Westwood Village shopping center features a diversity of homes available for prices well below the median for center-city Seattle. The shopping center attracts people from many other Seattle neighborhoods and can occasionally snarl traffic, but in general the distance from downtown means that Westwood Village is a quiet neighborhood with a suburban feel. The area is served by the Highline school district. Schools in the area include Roxhill Elementary, Holy Family, Chief Sealth International High School and Learning Way School and Daycare, among others. The shopping center itself is truly a one-stop shopping destination. Inside the location is a QFC for groceries, a 24-Hour Fitness, a few chain and local restaurants, a Target for household items and much more. In nearby White Center, visitors can make a day of it with a taco at the Mexican food stand Taqueria La Fondita #2 for lunch, one of the best slices of pizza in all of Seattle at Proletariat Pizza for dinner, and maybe an after-dinner drink (and maybe even some karaoke) at Mac's Triangle Pub. There is also the opportunity to get in a few frames of bowling at Roxbury Lanes and Roxy's Casino, which is open until 2 a.m. to accommodate your inner night owl.
