Capitol Hill has the highest concentration of small businesses in Washington State. This neighborhood is one of the city’s most economically and culturally important business districts, as well as Seattle's historic epicenter for the LGBTQ business and residential community.

Capitol Hill is where Seattleites work, live, or travel to for its thriving business, education, restaurant, arts, and nightlife scene.
