View as Map

King County Metro route 5 takes a straightforward path from downtown, through northwest Seattle, and up to Shoreline. It’s a super-busy route, taking Aurora from downtown to Fremont. Then, on Fremont, Phinney. and Greenwood, in takes an almost-straight shot north through Phinney Ridge and Greenwood to Shoreline.

Between the route’s bookends downtown and at Shoreline Community College, it hits a bunch of landmarks, including the Woodland Park Zoo, Bitter Lake, and a whole bunch of neighborhoody commercial centers.

We found six notable homes along the route—there are a lot of cute Craftsmans around here, but there’s a lofted condo, too.
