Seattle's Top 10 : Broadway

This is the main drag that slices across Capitol Hill, one of Seattle’s edgier communities just up the hill from downtown. Block after block of hip stores and a wide variety of cafés and restaurants attract a thriving gay culture and gritty youth population. On warm nights, Broadway is about as urban as Seattle gets as it surges with pedestrians. Thanks to the avenue’s proclivity for over-the-edge fashion, people-watching can be a year-round activity and great source of entertainment. Broadway has, until recently, served as the main route for the Seattle Pride March . The march has now moved out of the area.

Pill Hill

An affectionate term for First Hill, the area almost indistinct from Capitol Hill along the same high ridge above downtown. It’s thick with most of the area’s hospitals and medical research facilities, hence the nickname.


There are several pockets of panhandlers and homeless street people along Broadway. Use your discretion if asked for donations.


Parking on Capitol Hill is at a premium; leave the car at the hotel and take a bus instead.


Top 10 Sights
  1. Broadway Performance Hall

    Originally Broadway High School, the hall is part of the campus for Seattle Central Community College. Victor Steinbrueck was instrumental in restoring this structure. Its repertoire includes film festivals, and music and dance recitals.

  2. Jimi Hendrix sculpture

    This cast iron sculpture of rock legend Jimi Hendrix is located by the popular Pike/Pine corridor.

  3. Cal Anderson Park

    Named after one of Washington’s openly gay legislators, the park features Lincoln Reservoir, Bobby Morris playfield, tennis courts, a children’s play area to the southeast, and an interactive water feature.

  4. Dance Steps on Broadway

    Sculptor Jack Mackie created an amusing series of inlaid bronze dance steps along the sidewalks of Broadway in 1982.

  5. Red Light

    This two-story bastion of quirk and fashion is Seattle’s largest vintage clothing store. Choose from a varied collection with the help of friendly and informed staff.

  6. Bailey/Coy Books

    A city institution as well as a Broadway favorite, this store is tiny by large chain standards. Expect a gracious and knowledgeable staff, and an enviable inventory – especially if you’re hunting for gay and lesbian literature.

  7. Zebraclub

    This outlet of Zebraclub’s downtown store has an equally modern collection of urban fashion from designers such as Betsey Johnson and Diane Von Furstenburg.

  8. The Vajra

    The name translates as “Destroyer of Ignorance”, and this shop is perfect for your Tibetan Buddhist meditation supplies. Look for blockprint tapestries, scented oils, and incense. It’s also a popular spot for tarot card reading.

  9. Harvard Exit/Egyptian Theaters

    Broadway’s two vintage movie houses showcase independent films from directors on the vanguard. The Seattle International Film Festival makes liberal use of both the theaters each year.

  10. Dick’s

    Seattle’s homegrown version of a fast food hamburger joint, and unadulterated Americana to boot since 1954, this branch is a magnet for crowds on weekend nights. Quick and delicious, but not recommended for cholesterol watchers.
