Life in Capitol Hill goes at a pace that’s a little bit faster than the rest of the city. Nowhere else in the greater metropolitan area will you find lobbyists rubbing elbows with punk rockers against a backdrop of art, culture, and turn-of-the-century architecture. Many different types of people call this neighborhood home – and while political, economic, and personal opinions might now all be the same—there is a strong theme of unity and community spirit nonetheless. Capitol Hill is the kind of neighborhood with its own publication, “Life on the Hill.” In June Capitol Hill becomes the place to be for arts and crafts aficionados who attend Capitol Hill’s annual “People’s Fair.” More than 500 arts and crafts vendors, musicians, and artists gather in the Civic Center Park and residents from all over the city come to enjoy a day of music, carnival rides, food, and art.
As per its eclectic flavor, the types of available Capitol Hill real estate range from apartment spaces in modified Victorian mansions to new, high-end condominiums.
