Best Mile of Seattle

Beginning of Spruce Park (12th and Jefferson) and Capitol Hill (12th and Madison)

Previously the domain of Seattle University students and Central District cab drivers, the half-mile between the beginning of Spruce Park (12th and Jefferson) and Capitol Hill (12th and Madison) is evolving, literally every week. The university is opening a new bank of dorms—with retail space—in the fall; Ba Bar, posting up in the old Watertown space, serves Vietnamese snacks until 4 a.m.; and a new affordable housing development has just broken ground. Start on the east side of the street and walk back on the west; all told, you'll find few miles with as much organic cultural diversity as these blocks. CHRIS KORNELIS
