Why you'd want to live in Beacon Hill (South Seattle)
Beacon Hill is easy to spot in Seattle thanks to the old veteran hospital that sits atop its peak and how close it is to First Hill and downtown. As you walk around this neighborhood you’ll quickly notice the abundance of colorful wall murals, eye-catching statues and other public art that proudly celebrates its wide range of ethnic communities and people. Asian, Pacific Islander and foreign-born residents occupy much of Beacon Hill. This is a very residential neighborhood that’s full of single-family homes, as well as some great “must visit” spots including: The Station (for coffee), Delite Bakery (a local favorite for fresh baked goods), Red Apple Grocery Store, and don’t forget to relax in Jefferson Park for an afternoon picnic or try a game of bowling at Imperial Lanes. If you’re looking for a bit of mixed cultural diversity, and more solitude, then Beacon Hill is the spot for you.
