First Hill is a neighborhood located east of Seattle's downtown business district. The area is within easy walking distance to the downtown core and all its amenities and services, however, it has many businesses and facilities of its own. A hospital, a museum, shopping, and dining are all located in the neighborhood along with some historic mansions, churches, schools, parks, gardens, and the Seattle University. With so many interesting destinations, the First Hill is a highly walkable district.  

When traveling on foot with your dog, you should be prepared for wet weather which is frequently rainy in transitional seasons and winter months. A rain jacket and umbrella are an asset and warmer gear for cooler winter months is suggested. Be cautious when the temperature drops to freezing as wet walkways can become slippery. Summers are dry and sunny for the most part with few extreme temperatures or storms to hamper your daily walk with your furry friend.

The district is bordered by Interstate 5 on the west, East Lake and East Madison Street on the north, South Main Street on the south, and 12th Avenue on the east. First Hill is situated on and named for the hill where it is located and the terrain is hilly, although most inclines are not overly steep. Walks with your pooch will necessitate some climbs, so be prepared for some extra effort.
