Capitol Hill

view-mapView Map

The people who live and work on "the Hill" do so in the shadow of the edifice that lends the neighborhood its name: the gleaming white Capitol. This is where political deals and decisions are made. Beyond these grand buildings lies a vibrant and diverse group of neighborhoods with charming residential blocks lined with Victorian row houses and a fine assortment of restaurants and bars where off-duty senators, members of Congress, and lobbyists do some of their business. D.C.'s favorite market and newest sporting attraction are also here. A little farther afield, the rapidly gentrifying H Street Corridor to the north and east offers hip and edgy shopping, dining, and nightlife.
