The neighborhood —

Welcome to the Hill

With its small village feel in the heart of Washington, longtime residents and visitors alike fall in love with the community’s strong sense of history and identity. While iconic sights like the Capitol and Supreme Court inspire awe, other streets are filled with charming rowhouses and public parks.

Around the corner

From Pennsylvania Avenue to Eastern Market and Barracks Row, Capitol Hill’s shops, restaurants and cafes continue to charm both locals and visitors. Enjoy nearby sights like the National Mall and Smithsonian museums, or ride your bike along some of the loveliest streets in America.

Getting here

Capitol Hill forms DC’s easternmost border with convenient access to major highways, several Metro lines and Union Station. Multiple Capital Bikeshare stations can also be found in the area, and east of the Capitol. Neighborhood blocks are relatively short and flat, making walking or cycling a breeze.
