SoDo, Elliott Bay, Duwamish Head January 2009
The reason to visit the 12th Avenue S Viewpoint is for the sweeping view of Downtown Seattle, SoDo, the Duwamish Industrial Area, West Seattle, Elliott Bay & on a clear day, the spectacular Olympic Mountains. The viewpoint is a short walk from the Beacon Hill Station: 1 block south on Beacon Av S, then 4 blocks west on S McClellan St. The neighborhood there is a pleasant mix of craftsman & mid-century homes. Look for remnant Japanese gardens of the old Japanese community there. If you are in the mood to eat, try Filipino food at Inay’s, just a short distance north of the station at the corner of Beacon Avenue S & S Bayview Street. The beautiful, modern Beacon Hill Library is at the corner of Beacon Avenue S & S Forest Street, 2 blocks south of the station.
