Just east of downtown, find a colorful, urban scene where many streets boast a metropolitan buzz and others emanate a tree-lined, residential calm. This is the city’s LGBTQ hub, but visitors and locals of all sorts flock to Capitol Hill.
Capitol Hill is funky and fast-paced, with an endless number of cool blocks to explore and, unfortunately, a limited number of parking spaces. During the day, markets, boutiques, and salons are a big draw. Nightlife is hopping with clubs, bars, and music venues, and you’ll often find coffee shops that moonlight as cocktail lounges. Individuality and fashion statements are encouraged, and there always seems to be some sort of block party or community forum to encourage residents and visitors to mix and mingle.
