Capitol Hill is possibly the city’s most culturally diverse section and, along its main street, Broadway, most energetic. Capitol Hill is home to a vibrant, diverse community, and a magnet for young folks ranging from techies, to skateboarders and punk rockers, to serious book-toting students (three colleges reside here). After cruising Broadway and its numerous funky shops and incredible restaurants, take a walk through one of Seattle’s favorite urban escapes, Volunteer Park.
Capitol Hill also has some of the most amazing historical homes. Gorgeous landscaping, large floor plans with formal entries, detailed millwork, and even some views make these homes highly desirable with a price tag to match.
Perched above the Retail Core and Chinatown/International District, First Hill is regarded as Seattle’s first neighborhood where pioneer families established roots and left behind a rich history of classic homes, gardens and churches. First Hill is home to Swedish Hospital, Harborview and many medical arms of both renowned facilities. First Hill has a diverse housing mix with condos, apartments, townhomes and single family homes.
