Guide to Capitol Hill

Things to Do in Capitol Hill

View Map

Within the perimeters of Denver's Capitol Hill district, you will find one of the most diverse and eclectic neighborhoods the city has to offer. Located just north of Denver's downtown, Capitol Hill pales in comparison to the large, vertical reaches of the business district, but its buildings have a charm all their own since most of them were built around the 1920s.

The Colorado State Capitol Building is a well-known attraction within this urban culture hub, along with Civic Center Park, a venue for many downtown events and festivals.

The neighborhood's charm is found in its close proximity to modern downtown Denver and the business district, while maintaining an eclectic community of homes and businesses. Many of the houses are older, but this area has become a popular location for millennials. You’ll even find historic apartment complexes in this neighborhood called “Poet’s Row,” named after the likes of Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost. Fittingly, Alan Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac once resided in this area.

The beautiful Cheesman Park is right on the edge Capitol Hill, as well.
