Neighborhood

One of Seattle’s most storied neighborhoods, Capitol Hill is an iconic locale perched on a long ridge that surveys downtown from the east.

Tracing its roots to early pioneers who carved a wagon road through the forested ridge in 1872, it remains true to its pioneering spirit with a community scene that continues to trailblaze in the arts, entertainment, cuisine and international culture. In fact, those in the know say the lexicon of artisanal coffee culture and latte art in Seattle and the United States was brewed up at Capitol Hill’s own revered Espresso Vivace!
An easy walk away is Cal Anderson Park, a popular gathering place for many public celebrations. Check out the playfields and sports courts, laze in the sprawling meadow or simply unwind with a good book near a mountain-shaped water fountain that feeds wading and reflecting pools.

Lexicon living makes getting around the city a breeze, beginning with Sound Transit’s Capitol Hill Station. The transit hub puts you minutes away from everything! Of course, with everything there is to see and do in Capitol Hill, you may just want to hang closer to home. With its bike-friendly vibe and rating as a walker’s paradise, it’s easy to explore all this exceptional neighborhood has to offer!

NEIGHBORHOOD FAVORITES

DICK’S DRIVE-IN

Acclaimed for its homemade burgers, fries and shakes, this Capitol Hill landmark is so Seattle, Macklemore filmed his White Halls music video on the roof in 2013. Its recognition includes multiple Best Burger awards from the local media, and it’s also known by relationship advice sites as a dating hot spot, was proclaimed the No. 1 Drive-In to bring your dog to, and declared a comfort-food burger icon by Seattle Refined!

CAPITOL HILL LIGHT RAIL STATION

Getting instantly connected doesn’t get any easier than Sound Transit’s Capitol Hill Link light rail station, just a block away from Lexicon!

Here you’ll find transportation options that link you to key locations, as well as the area’s broader transportation network throughout the Puget Sound region. Think of the below ground transit hub as a prime convenience amenity that reaches far beyond Lexicon – come rain, shine or traffic!

Served by Link light rail, King County Metro and the nearby First Hill Streetcar, the Capitol Hill Station provides easy access to SeaTac airport, downtown, Lumen Field, T-Mobile Park, the University of Washington and more!

CAL ANDERSON PARK

Welcome to the outdoor hub of Capitol Hill, whose beginning was both golden and a rush! The park got its start as a vital city water reservoir in 1901, when the south portion of the tract was designated as a public green space in preparation for the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition marking the 10-year anniversary of the Klondike Gold Rush.

Today, the 7-acre park named in 2005 for Washington’s first openly gay state legislator remains a vibrant community crossroads. Its iconic mountain-shaped water fountain and reflecting pond offer a relaxing getaway and serve as a backdrop for neighborhood activities, events, organized and informal sports, or splashing around in the wading pool. You might even want to tap your inner chess master at one of the oversized chess boards! Of course, if you’d rather just unwind, the park is a popular spot to read, refresh with a walk or run, or simply revel in a sunset sky as Capitol Hill’s nightlife turns on.
