Capitol Hill is an absolutely wonderful place to live. We love the history of the homes nearby and learning what famous people have lived in them, walking by the Library of Congress, Supreme Court, and the Capitol at night, walking to nearby first rate restaurants, and watching the Marine Corps Band and Honor Guard's Tattoo on Friday nights, Recently the city has opened a beautiful new park just down the street on the waterfront. There's a great sidewalk level fountain for the kids to play in, free outdoor/lawn movies and music on summer evenings. The entire Capitol Hill area has undergone an incredible revitalization within the past ten years and many young families with small children fill the many parks. Most of my guests really enjoy Eastern Market - because on weekends you can find great fresh foods, antiques, international craft items, art and lots of jewelry. It is superbusy - very fun place to spend time with friends.
