South Lake Union Discovery Center

SLU Discovery Center

The best place to start a South Lake Union visit is at the center of it.

South Lake Union, as you'll soon discover, does things a little differently. We have this website and an entire building devoted to acquainting you with the lay of the land. Here you'll find a display devoted to the area's history, loads of information on places you can live or do business, and an amazing interactive model of the entire neighborhood. You'll find something else at the Discovery Center that will make your shoe-leather visit to South Lake Union even more rewarding. It's your own free SLU Card that opens the door to discounts at shops, restaurants, and events. As we said, it's completely free, but the savings are definitely multi-digit.
