Seattle: Capitol Hill District

Capitol Hill is one of my favorite Seattle neighborhoods to spend time in because it has an amazing vibe about it.  In a few descriptors, this neighborhood, to me, is alternative, hip, and crazy.  

A Capitol Hill Lazy Tourist Day

There are a lot of things to do on Capitol Hill.  Here are a few suggestions for those who want to experience some Seattle culture.

In the daytime:
1.  Coffee and a newspaper at a coffee house
2.  A jog through the neighborhoods
3.  Sunbathing at Volunteer Park
4.  Lunch on Broadway
5.  Perusing the shops along Broadway, checking out the Frye Museum, and stopping by St. James Cathedral

At night:
1.  Dinner on 15th 
2.  Drinks on Pike, Pine, or Broadway
3.  Dancing at Q or Havana
4.  Watching a movie at the Egyptian Theatre
5.  Catching a performance at Seattle Central College

There's a lot to find up on Capitol Hill!

Today, we headed out to Capitol Hill mainly to check out the books at Twice Sold Tales, which is one of our favorite secondhand bookshops in Seattle.  Parking was not that bad to obtain.  We parked along one of the neighborhoods right off of Broadway.  Then we had some ramen at Samurai Noodles.
