  • Sadly we didn't discover this part of Seattle until our last night in town, but it was worth seeing. While most of Seattle seems to shut down early, Broadway, Pike, and Pine in the Capital Hill region...  more »
  • Capitol Hills is one of the busiest neighborhoods in Seattle. It boasts many bars and places to eat. This on a small hill so you have to make an effort to get up. But the views that we have from there, make it worth to walk. At night, it is also a good choice to go to drink and meet a lively place and good music.

  • This is a good pronunciation lifting in the center of the city, it is hard to climb along the steep which is. It has a wonderful view to the sea. A very fashionable neighborhood with many local food and bars
