Capitol Hill is our home. We love it and know you will too! We've raise two kids on the Hill and now they are off to college. We've lived in this neighborhood for over 25 years and wouldn't live anywhere else! The apartment is six blocks from Union Station Metro stop.
Capitol Hill is a wonderful neighborhood full of pocket parks and beautiful old homes. Beyond the monuments and museums there is a whole other side to Washington. We love walking to Eastern Market on the weekends to get fresh fruits and veggies. The fresh pasta is the best! We take a stroll through the flea market and then sit with a good cup of coffee and watch the world go by.
I love to cook and we both love to eat! Washington has lots of restaurants with every possible ethnic variety available. H Street, NE just a few minutes away has many nice options from Asian to Ethiopian to Belgian. On 8th Street SE you will find great burgers, seafood and homemade pop tarts.
We have recently given up our car. The public transportation options are so plentiful we just didn't need it anymore. You can go by Metro, bus, or Bikeshare. If you need a car Zipcars are plentiful and close by. For those who come to DC by car there is off street parking at Union Station a 10 minute walk away.
The apartment is six blocks from the Capitol. There are many museums and cultural attractions on the Hill and close by on the National Mall. Washington DC Segway Tours, Old Town Trolley Tours, Capital City Bike Tours, DC Ducks Tour, C&O Canal Boat Rides, U.S. Navy Museum, Marine Barracks Parade and more. Just let us know what you are interested in and we are happy to help you have the best vacation ever!
