Seattle has a plethora of great neighborhoods, from the more business-oriented Queen Anne
area to the busy stores and attractions of Belltown
, but none more trendy and fun than Capitol Hill.
If you're looking for a Seattle vacation rental
that will put you near the best nightlife and entertainment options that the Emerald City has to offer, this is the place to look!
Once a major hub of the 1990s "grunge" scene, this area has maintained its close ties to music and art, but has since then trended more towards a wide variety of genres and styles. In our Capitol Hill vacation rentals, you're near more than 100 bars and restaurants, tons of cute boutiques and consignment stores, several lovely parks, and a handful of beloved small theaters. While you're here, you'll never run out of things to do and see!
Shopping & Dining on Capitol Hill
Stroll down Broadway, the main thoroughfare, and stop in at several of the little stores lining the street. You can lose yourself in a book at the Elliot Bay Book Company
, one of the country's best independent bookstores, then grab burgers at Dick's Drive-In, a beloved Seattle burger chain. If you're in the mood for another type of cuisine, just look around: this area is dotted with dozens of different kinds of restaurants - all delicious. Whatever you choose for dinner, don't forget to cap off the evening with ice cream at Molly Moon's!
Arts, Culture, & the Outdoors
Looking for a little greenery? Spend some time in Cal Anderson Park, named by Forbes.com as one of the nation's best parks. Visitors can enjoy the wading pool, tennis and basketball courts, and playground, or challenge each other to a game of chess on the oversized chess boards.
Capitol Hill, being home to Seattle Central College and many of the city's artists, has some of the best local dance and theater. Check out a show at the Velocity Dance Center or Broadway Performance Hall.
Capitol Hill Nightlife
If you want to check out the city's nighttime activities, our Capitol Hill vacation rentals make a great home base. Take a class or go to a social event to dance the night away at Dance Underground
, which has tango, swing, salsa, ballet, and blues dancing, depending on the night of the week. For club dancing, you can try Q Nightclub, or wow your friends with your dulcet tones in a private karaoke room at the Rock Box
, then hit up one of Seattle's craziest (and coolest) bars, Unicorn, when you're done. If you just want to relax with a cocktail, Needle and Thread has a fun speakeasy vibe, amazing beverage concoctions, and smooth jazz music.
For a vacation surrounded by music, art, and the best food you're likely to find, Capitol Hill is where you want to be. Book one of our Capitol Hill vacation rentals now and start thinking about what all you want to do while you're here!
