Shopping Malls and Centers: The University District, as full of young faces as you would expect, features plenty of shopping venues, restaurants, cafés, and cultural centers. The area was also the site of the Alaska-Yukon Pacific Exposition in 1909; a few of the buildings constructed then are still in use today. Aside from the gorgeous campus, the district offers museums, libraries, comedy clubs and bars for day and evening entertainment. In addition, the area boasts a farmers market and a veritable cornucopia of unique stores and boutiques. Find hip, young fashion at American Apparel and Buffalo Exchange, or stock up on UW paraphernalia at the bookstore.
