Located between the Duwamish River, Airport Way South, and Boeing field, Georgetown sits below SODO (South of Downtown). Georgetown is one of Seattle’s oldest neighborhoods with its first settlement founded in 1851. The neighborhood has been shaped by farms, railroads, breweries, the Boeing Company, and other industries that have come and gone through the decades.
Today you can still find breweries along with restaurants, bars, and interesting murals in the Georgetown neighborhood. Most Seattle residents probably don’t envision the industrial neighborhood of Georgetown with the best photo spots of the city. However as I’ve explored this Seattle neighborhood, I’ve found interesting and Instagrammable places you can’t find anywhere else in the city.
From giant cowboy boots to a trailer park mall, here are:
8 Most Instagram Worthy Places in Georgetown, Seattle
1. CARSTAR Mural
Address: 1209 S Bailey St, Seattle, WA 98108
I stumbled upon the CARSTAR mural on my way to happy hour to Cuidad one day. CARSTAR Hammer Auto Rebuild is a family owned and operated facility. This auto body shop has been in business since 1949.
While I’ve personally never gotten my car worked own by CARSTAR, I have stopped by the red and white star mural. This bold mural is one of favorite walls in Georgetown, Seattle!
2. Hats & Boots Park (Oxbow Park)
Address: 6427 Carleton Ave S, Seattle, WA 98108
Can you believe these giant cowboy boots and hat are located in Seattle?
In 1953, Lewis Nasmyth (a Seattle artist) was hired to create a western style gas station in Georgetown. While the gas station is no longer in operation (it closed in 1988), you can still find the giant cowboy boots and hat at this park. The local community council raised funds to move the giant cowboy hat and boots to Oxbow Park in 2003.

If you’re looking for restaurant and bar in Georgetown, you have to stop by Cuidad. This restaurant has roots in Spanish/Latin culture.
My favorite things on the menu include: the saffron cauliflower & sweet onion (THIS IS SO GOOD), flatbread and dip, the tahini marinated chicken, and the moruno spiced hanger steak. I usually go with a group of people. We usually end up getting a quarter to a half pound of all the meats and splitting it as a group.

If you’re looking for an Instagram worthy dessert in Georgetown, you have to stop by Seattle Freeze Ice Cream & Doughnuts. I absolutely love their ube ice cream! I already featured Seattle Freeze in my Seattle’s Most Instagrammable Dessert Places Round Up.
Address: 1205 S Vale St, Seattle, WA 98108
If you’re looking for a solid coffee spot in Georgetown, Seattle, you should stop by All City Coffee. I love all of the natural light that comes into the coffee shop. The interior is simple but trendy. And there’s plenty of space for groups to meet up.

Founded in 2004, Georgetown Records opened as an independent record store. You can find records, live music, art events, and book signings in store. Holly and I loved their neon sign and stopped by to take photos here last spring.
7. Georgetown Mural
Address: 5955 Airport Way S, Seattle, WA 98108
If you’re looking for the most Instagram worthy places in Georgetown, you have to stop by the Welcome to Georgetown neighborhood. This is sort of across All City Coffee in the Sandbox Sports parking lot.
There was a bunch of cars in the lot so we ended up cropping the mural in the photo.
