Capitol Hill, Marmalade District & the Avenues
The Avenues/Capitol Hill area is located just north of the city center in the foothills above the city. The area offers a mix of beautiful historic homes and trendy yoga studios, day spas, bed and breakfasts, coffee shops, and restaurants. The Avenues is a neighborhood popular among young professionals and university students. Grab a coffee at Two Creeks Coffee House before spending the day getting pampered at the Avenue's Day Spa. Then for dinner, sample Tibetan food at the Avenue's Café Shambala. The Capitol Hill area includes the Historic Marmalade District, a residential area named for the fruit-bearing trees planted by the district's early residents. Take a walk through the Marmalade District and view the area's vintage homes built precariously on the district's steep, narrow, and angular streets.
