The Columbia City neighborhood is a rapidly changing area. Many historic retail buildings flourish with new restaurants and artsy store front businesses. Indeed, Columbia City has become one of the best walking neighborhoods in the City of Seattle over the last few years. Its eclectic mix of hip and historic make it a magnet for the young and old alike. The neighborhood hosts an active and crowed monthly "Beat Walk," on the first Sunday of the month, May through October, and many local businesses participate with Jazz bands, open houses, and art exhibits. The Wednesday afternoon Farmers Market has become a gathering spot for locals on a weekly basis.
The addition of the Columbia City Light Rail Station has also boosted the neighborhood’s popularity, offering easy public transportation to residents and visitors alike. The homes around the commercial center of Columbia City reflect the diversity of the people – all types of housing from apartment buildings and condos, to ramblers and bungalows, almost any style and price range of home can be found here.
