Get Outside and Explore Capitol Hill

/ /
If you haven't been out to explore Capitol Hill. Now is the time! This vibrant, bustling neighborhood is the Manhattan of Seattle. Offering all you could ever want for shopping, dining, arts, entertainment, nightlife, outdoors and more! Not to mention being well connected to downtown and other nearby neighborhoods.

Urban Living at its Best

We highly recommend that you get out and explore Capitol Hill. Broadway, the Pike/Pine corridor, E. Olive Way, and both 12th and 15th Avenues. They have a variety of businesses and unique shops offering local goods and clothing. Broadway Market is nearly a one-stop shop all to itself. If you can’t find it there, you will close by! When the weather is nicer, many of the restaurants and bars such as Witness, Bait Shop, and Rom Mai Thai pour out onto the street with sidewalk seating to enjoy the diverse fare and passers-by. Grab your morning coffee on the way to work at the Vivace, Analog or Top Pot. Enjoy weekend brunch and a stroll thru the year-round Capitol Hill Farmers Market. There is no shortage of outdoor space. The larger Volunteer and Cal Anderson parks allow for a green escape in the city. Find one of the many smaller parks that dot the hill. Some even have their own p-patch communities, such as Tashkent, Summit Slope, or Broadway Hill parks.
