South Beacon Hill, Seattle Reviews
Familiar through passing
My parents would pick me up at the Light Rail stations in Beacon Hill, so I’m a fairly frequent visitor to these parts, but my actual knowledge of them is quite limited. There seem to be some pretty awesome destinations not too far: Mt Baker and Columbia city are definitely places to check out if you’re not familiar with the area. Beacon Hill itself is kinda ‘burby so there isn’t a whole lot to experience … except for the AMAZINGMexican food they have scattered around. Seriously, the tacos are cheap and to die for. Many people claim this neighborhood has a reputation, but I ride the Light Rail all the time and have never felt too unsafe.
Ramblers and Easy to Get to
