Some people like to get high—high above the downtown's bustle. So they come to the Avenues and Capitol Hill, two charming, historic, liberal neighborhoods. Take an urban hike around the Aves or the Hill and notice the prim, proper, and historic homes that line the streets. As you poke around, you’ll notice a mix of shops and restaurants which add to the neighborhood's character.
The Avenues gets its name from the strict grid system of its streets, with numbered avenues running east-west and lettered streets running north-south.
Diversity is the motto here in the Avenues, in both housing and residents. It’s not uncommon to see mansions next to bungalows or a classic cottage next to an apartment building. Likewise with its contingent of students, professionals, artists, lawyers, businesspeople—you name it, and you’re likely to find it here.
So come as your are: you’ll fit right in.
