Pillar Properties Weekly Recap – May 23

With the sun out this week, we thought it was a great time to find some nature spots around our communities. Here were some of our recommendations.

The Corydon

People looking for an amazing walk through the flowers and trees often forget about the 702 acres of paths and cherry blossoms at the University of Washington campus. It’s a peaceful and serene set of trails ideally designed for anyone who loves outdoor scenery. Read the whole post here. UW Cherry Blossoms Image Source: MyNorthwest.com

The Lyric

We have two easy suggestions for the nature lover. The Volunteer Park Conservatory is a  Victorian greenhouse modeled after London’s Crystal Palace, featuring bromeliad, fern, palm, seasonal, and cactus. And the St. Mark’s Greenbelt buffers Capitol Hill from I-5 and provides wildlife habitat, dense vegetation and trails.

Not only are there some great options for going vegetarian on Capitol Hill, the three we’re going to talk about today couldn’t be any more different. If a classy dining experience is what you’re looking for, head on over to Plum Bistro. Want to eat like a local? You can’t go wrong with longtime neighborhood staple In the Bowl Vegetarian Noodle Studio. If you like your vegan cuisine served with a side of stiff drinks and live music, take a stroll down Broadway and pop into The Highline. Get our full synopsis here.
