  • 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
