Capitol Hill is vibrant, diverse community of bustling activity and peaceful abodes. Part hip and urban, part wooded and stately, it is a community that often feels like a small town in itself, one that a huge variety of business – and people from all walks of life – call home.
Highlights include the Broadway Farmers Market, a seasonal fiesta of food, flowers and music; Cal Anderson Park, which is full of dog walkers, Frisbee players and children dipping their toes in the streaming fountain; and the Pike/Pine Corridor’s vintage clothing stores, furniture shops and coffeehouses.
There’s also plenty of green. At the north end of Broadway sits Volunteer Park, a large, forested urban oasis, replete with a glass conservatory built in 1912, the Seattle Asian Art Museum, and a water tower with splendid 360 degree views of downtown Seattle and neighborhoods near and far. From here, all the favorite Seattle landmarks are visible, from the Space Needle to Lake Washington’s floating bridge to Husky Stadium.
