1920 Fourth Avenue N.
| Via Queen Anne Real Estate

Downtown is the center of the King County Metro Route 3 sandwich, but on either side, this route goes a lot of places, starting in upper Queen Anne and ending up in Madrona.

Along the way, it hits a ton of neighborhoods, most notably large swaths of the Central Area. This also includes Uptown, Belltown, First Hill, and Squire Park, rolling through multiple employment centers, hospitals, and neighborhoods.

This means that the route takes a ton of different types of commuters, including those going to doctors appointments, heading downtown for work, or headed to one of multiple high schools and colleges along the route—that includes Garfield High School on one end and Seattle Pacific University on the other.

It also means a lot of tourist destinations: It runs past not only downtown, but is a popular bus to Seattle Center and all that entails.

We’ve found six notable homes along the route.
