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.

Ravenna is bordered on the north by Wedgwood, on the east by Bryant, on the south by University District, and on the west by Roosevelt.
