There is no capitol building here but Capitol Hill is still a stately neighborhood. In fact, one section is referred to as "Millionaires Row". But for anyone with a smaller bank account, there are parts of the neighborhood with more modest homes and plenty of apartment buildings.
Capitol Hill is popular with young professionals and singles since it has so much to offer. It's had a vibrant nightlife since the 1970s and is known for a great selection of live music, bars, and restaurants. During the day you can hit up one of the many independent cafes and visit the unique shops. This is also a popular home to Seattle's gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender population.
And when you need to sweat out the previous night's indulgences you can go for a run in one of the many parks within its borders.
Parking can be difficult in some areas so you'll want to make sure a space is included with any home if you have a car.
Capitol Hill is bordered on the north by Portage Bay and Montlake, on the east by Broadmoor and Madison Valley, on the south by Central District and First Hill, and on the west by Eastlake, South Lake Union, and Downtown Seattle.
