King County Metro route 7 is a workhorse of a bus, running from downtown and through the International District before taking a direct route straight through the heart of the Rainier Valley down Rainier Avenue South.
That includes a run through Mount Baker, Columbia City, Hillman City, and Seward Park before taking a full tour of Rainier Beach, both upper and lower. The route hits much of the southend not served by Link Light Rail—taking them both downtown and to a transfer point at Mount Baker Station—staying to the west of the tracks and getting landmarks like Rainier Beach High School and the Columbia City Library.
Because of that route alignment, it also gets closer to the lake, especially as it winds farther south. Pritchard Island Beach is just a few blocks off the route, and it practically stops at the Atlantic City Boat Ramp’s front door.
We found six notable homes for sale along the route.Read More
