Ravenna is a quiet neighborhood in northeast Seattle named after Ravenna, Italy.
Students and professors from the nearby University of Washington call this home, but it's also popular with young families and professionals.
The main shopping hub is the U-Village outdoor mall which has plenty of big brands and entertainment for kids. You can go for a run through the 50 acres (20 hectares) of Cowen-Ravenna Park or fire up one of its many grills for a barbecue.

Together, these two parks offer four-and-a-half miles of trails through a deep ravine full of urban nature. The leafy paths descend steeply from the center of the neighborhood, enveloping walkers in a world of trees and calm as they wander under the arching bridges of 15th and 20th Avenues and along Ravenna Creek. 5849 15th Ave. NE
