Today I want to share with everyone the neighborhood we stayed in while in Seattle! We stayed in Capitol Hill, a cute neighborhood right outside of the city. It had the feel of the Short North when we were on the main streets, like Broadway; but also the feel of German Village or Grandview Heights when we were in the residential sections. We stayed in a small apartment through VRBO (I would highly recommend this service!) and we had about a twenty minute walk to the Washington State Conference Center where the APA’s National Conference was held. The walk to the conference center was nice because it was mostly downhill (we ended up using Uber to get back most of the time because of wandering after the conference).
The houses in Capitol Hill were beautiful! I loved the bright colors of the apartments & condos and the architecture styles of the older homes. My favorite is probably the one pictured above because I love the Victorian style & the wrap around porch. It reminded me of Lorelai Gilmore’s house in Gilmore Girls. The residential areas felt so peaceful, while the main streets were filled with life & many people.
The first night in Seattle, we did some exploring in Capitol Hill to see what all was around us. The area had some great second-hand shops that I ended up doing some shopping at (like this dress). I really enjoyed all the food we ate in Capitol Hill. The burger & sweet potato fries are form our first dinner at Blue Moon Burgers – SO good. I love a good burger with swiss cheese & pickles. The picture with my friends & I all with pancakes (yep, we all literally order the same thing) is of our first breakfast together at Witness – SO, SO good. Witness had a sort of southern feel to it, which might sound strange since we were in the pacific northwest. I could have ate at Witness everyday because they had a great looking menu of things I would have loved to try. Sadly, we didn’t make it back, but I will definitely be going back when I’m in Seattle again!
I would highly recommend visiting Capitol Hill if you are ever in Seattle!
