Hilly • Museums • Upscale
Despite its unimaginative name, First Hill — the first hill you hit when leaving downtown — is a hot ticket in Seattle. It's close to the action downtown and in Capitol Hill, but far enough to discourage tourists. You'll find the Frye Art Museum and St. James Cathedral here, tucked into the bizarre collection of high-rise condos, hospitals and mansions that once housed Seattle's elite. Head to Madison Street for affordable, low-key eateries.
