About Columbia City
Living in Columbia City
The personality of the area, with its community pride and original historic buildings, has remained intact even through a period of growth and rising popularity.
One reason may be that Columbia City has been designated a historic landmark district in Seattle.
This requires oversight by a board of citizens who make sure the buildings and public spaces retain their historic appearance, and that the character of the buildings in the area is preserved.
This is evident when you take a look around the neighborhood, which is located in the Rainier Valley area of southeast Seattle between Interstate 5 and Lake Washington.
Things to do in Columbia City
The destination-restaurant La Medusa has now been joined by newcomers like Salted Sea, a Vietnamese-influenced raw bar, and Super Six, serving poke, malasadas, and SPAM musubi. Or keep things simple at the Hummingbird Saloonwith pints, Cornish pasties, and games of pinball in the same Rainier Avenue strip mall as the amazing Full Tilt Ice Cream.
