“Capitol Visitor Center is the place to start.. its where we all begin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

Very structured tour gives you a great start; sometimes very very busy during school break times.. try early December or February as great tour times.

“A real neighborhood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2012

I called Capitol Hill my literal home for a decade and can honestly say it's an amazing neighborhood anchored by the splendid beauty of the US Capitol. Enjoy Eastern Market on weekends, take a stroll down the tree lined boulevards, and enjoy Washington DC at its best!
