The Danforth gets its name from a style of anchor used to secure large ships in the harbor. In similar fashion, The Danforth anchors the intersection of Broadway and Madison – connecting Capitol Hill, First Hill and the expansive Seattle University campus.

Capitol Hill

Capitol Hill is Seattle’s self-proclaimed entertainment hub. Ask any Seattleite and they’ll tell you – this neighborhood is the cultural heartbeat of the city.

“It’s one of the quirkiest, hippest and most happening neighborhoods in Seattle, chock full of some of the best restaurants, cafes, breweries and bars in the city” – Seattle Times

Here’s a few hot spots you don’t want to miss:

First Hill

First Hill is the first residential neighborhood of Seattle. Today, that legacy lives through the historic architecture, tree lined streets and quiet escapes. It’s also the epicenter of the medical industry of Seattle, providing a foundation for organizations like Swedish and Harborview.
