  WHAT’S LIVING IN Beacon Hill LIKE?

Beacon Hill is a giant, pea pod-shaped neighborhood in south Seattle that is booming with new development. One long-time resident remarked in the local Seattle Magazine that "businesses are moving here, the community is growing, there is a large amount of new construction, and bike paths have been developed." This development has brought in new residents and it's become a great place for young families – nearly 20% of households here have children.

This is relatively diverse area, home to a large Asian population and with decent percentages of African Americans and Whites. 

While this is a mostly residential neighborhood there are pockets of activity; the main business district is in north Beacon Hill, closer to downtown. You'll find plenty of restaurants and some basic shopping.

Beacon Hill is bordered on the north by International District, on the east by Mount Baker, Columbia City, Brighton, and Rainier Beach, on the south by the King County International Airport, and on the west by the Industrial District and Georgetown.
