  • This was by far our favourite place to explore! Quirky shops, great food, funky pubs and wonderful people. Everyone was so open to chatting or offering advice or opinion about where to explore next.  more »
  • Capitol Hill is a wonderful, clean and diverse community that I thoroughly enjoyed. Lots of shops, coffee houses and restaurants all within walking distance to each other.  more »
  • We walked through this area one Monday morning and enjoyed the good vibe here. We were going to see the Jimi Hendrix statue and happened upon a great bar / restaurant Oddfellows Cafe.  more »
