Welcome to Capitol Hill

A destination for young families and members of Congress alike
 
The Capitol Hill neighborhood extends east from the domed Capitol - on the north side from the Senate office buildings and, on the south side, from the House office buildings. The past 20 years have seen this neighborhood blossom into a small city of its own. Talented young chefs have created a happening food scene alongside tried-and-true political hangouts. Capitol Hill real estate is dominated by Federal and Victorian townhouses, many with separately accessed "English basements" that can be rented out separately. The outdoor food and arts "Eastern Market" as well as several neighborhood parks have made Capitol Hill a destination for young families and members of Congress alike. Metro access at Union Station, Capitol South, and Eastern Market make for easy commutes around the city.
