Phinney Ridge is a beautiful, central location in Seattle, Washington. It provides a wide variety of restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops, and little clothing stores. There is a great sense of community with people out and about each and every day. It is a safe neighborhood that sleeps at night and is active during the day.

I like how green the area is, the nearby Woodland Park Zoo/ Woodland Park, family friendliness, and safety. It would be better if there was more diversity and the houses were not as expensive. Mostly nice old craftsman houses but some are ugly and modern. Very hilly and not super easy to walk places.
Many people in this area are very into the outdoors and enjoy bike riding, rollerblading, scuba diving, sailing, kayaking etc.. There are several chain health club facilities as well as some private ones. There are a couple of tennis clubs and golf ranges and plenty of rock climbing facilities if one does not want to travel to the mountains. Many world class hospitals including a teaching university hospital that is a regional trauma unit. I love the outdoor and I try to find time biking and swimming.
