Guide to Capitol Hill
Things to Do in Capitol HillView Map
Capitol Hill is Seattle’s most densely populated neighborhood and you’ll find people from all walks of life in this diverse, welcoming district. It is the center of Seattle’s LGBT and counterculture communities, and also home to many families and young, successful professionals.
Pike and Pine Streets are where you’ll find some of the city’s most active nightlife destinations. A number of larger venues host touring live musical acts, dance music and performances of all types. The area was a breeding ground for bands during the 90s grunge explosion and continues to nurture a strong music scene to this day.
Along 15th Avenue there’s an assortment of boutiques, coffee houses and restaurants. The area is home to a number of extravagant residences with a street nicknamed “Millionaire’s Row.”
Get some fresh air and go for a walk in Cal Anderson Park, stopping by the reflecting pool and fountain. Further north you’ll find Volunteer Park, home to a water tower with an observation deck offering stunning views. Adjacent to the park is Lake View Cemetery, final resting place to famous Seattle resident Bruce Lee.
Capitol Hill rises just above downtown and the neighborhood is home to a lively mix of families, young professionals and students. This leafy neighborhood has it all—grand old homes that are just a few blocks away from downtown. But there's not need to leave the neighborhood. The highly walkable area offers cafes, cool shops, and restaurants galore. First Hill is an older neighborhood east of Chinatown with grand old homes, beautiful churches and lush gardens. The neighborhood is also home to Swedish Hospital and Virginia Mason Medical Center. Good food abounds. Try the trendy Boom Noodle or the vegetarian friendly Monsoon, a stylish Vietnamese restaurant. For dinner try Poppy, The Hunt Club and Cascina Spinasse.
