I love living in the mostly quiet nieghborhood of Madison Park - what I love most is it's not too far from downtown, the 520 bridge and I-5.
McGilvar's - great place to relax and enjoy the wonderful Seattle summers!
Scoop (ice cream shop next to Mad Pizza) - I prefer non-chain/corporate places. Since I do not have a pet myself, I enjoy seeing the many dogs (an their parents) being walked or chilling outside one of the local businesses waiting for their families.
Music, visual arts, voluntering.
