Tree-lined streets, bumpy cobblestone sidewalks, and rows of single-family homes give Cap Hill its historic charm. New developments are sprinkled throughout, most of which are mid-rise apartment complexes or modern three-story condos. The surrounding neighborhood of single-story homes means that these new taller buildings will always have unobstructed views of the mountains. Roads are slushy in the winter and shady in the summer, with plenty of lawns and gardens to enjoy during sidewalk strolls.

Things to Know
If you work in the Central Business District, Capitol Hill will be an easy commute. With access to the RTD bus systems, scooters, bike lanes, and walkability, commuting is a breeze. Capitol Hill streets are narrow and lined with parked cars, making it hard to navigate at times. Because of this, parking is cheaper but more difficult to find than parking garages of LoDo or the CBD. If you love walking, biking, or jogging then you'll be right at home in Capitol Hill Denver.
