In search for the perfect place to raise our children, my husband and I found Madison Valley - a neighborhood filled with important intersections for us. Madison Valley is where city and nature, people of different races and socioeconomic backgrounds, and old and new Seattle come together.
Our young children can ride their bikes and play basketball on our fairly protected street and we can walk to several lovely, quaint restaurants for a meal or to the arboretum for a play date. In the over 5 years we have lived in Madison Valley, our lives have been enriched by the unique character of our neighborhood and the diversity of our neighbors. Our children are exposed to the gifts a city brings through this diversity while getting to play in their backyard surrounded by trees and green space. Madison Valley is a real treasure and we cannot imagine living anywhere else.
