Capitol Hill Neighborhood Tour: Indie shops, nightlife, history and attitude!

By Seattle Under the Radar Tours
Center of Seattle’s LGBTQ community for years, "the hill" is vibrant, inclusive and delights with small independent shops, booming nightlife and attitude. We will learn about it's history and visit one of Seattle’s oldest parks with great views of the Space Needle. Along the way, we will check out a few of Seattle’s best book stores, some great record shops, sample locally made ice cream and confections, enjoy the best espresso in the city (in my opinion!) and see some of the most famous bars and live music venues in the city. This is a great way to plan your weekend agenda while in town if nightlife is your thing. These are the places I take my friends and family when they visit, I'd like to share them with you. With a max of 3 people, this is a personal "best of Seattle" tour that explores the places most visitors never see. Come explore with a 30 year local!

The tour and Lynn (the owner) were great! It was like visiting an old friend who knew a lot about the city. We saw a lot of things we would have never found on our own. She knew a lot of history about the Capitol Hill neighborhood and experienced its many changes. Very down to earth. Coffee and water were a nice touch as well as the narwhal balls at The Unicorn. Would definitely book a tour with her again! Fun and relaxing experience.

Capitol Hill tour was great! Lynn knows so much about this I learned about awesome (diamond in the rough) places there that I had not visited before even though I had lived on the Hill for for 13 years. Even the places I had been before I got to see through new eyes due to the inclusion of history about the places we visited. The whole tour was relaxed but not too slow, and I loved that we got to ask so many questions due to the small tour size. An excellent experience and I can't wait to go on other tours to learn more about the city I already love!

Thank you for riding with me, I can't wait to tour again with you and the gang! Let's do Georgetown and Alki Beach next, so much sordid history and beauty on that tour! --Lynn

I went on the Capitol Hill tour with Lynn and I have to say Wowza this girl knows what's up! I picked that tour because I used to live on Capitol Hill, but my boyfriend had never experienced it. Well I soon realized on the tour that neither had I! She immediately brought us to Vivace, which I was very familiar with, but she recommended a drink that I have never heard of, which is now a drink that makes me want to go back to Capitol Hill! Then she brought us all over different areas that I never thought to go and showed me an amazing history that I never knew. Then we went to some of the local bars, but still she schooled me with really cool facts that I never would have known! Seriously the most amazing tour, that I thought was just going to be for my boyfriend. I highly recommend!!!
