Capitol Hill

Highly recommended
The city's high eastern ground, bearing the popular designation Capitol Hill, is crowned by massive stone buildings serving the Legislative and Judicial branches of the federal government. Beyond them stretch the Hill's residential streets, neighborhoods of 19C row houses that reflect a true cross section of Washington's population.
