Washington, DC - Capitol Hill & Southeast DC (Chapter)
This is the Capitol Hill & Southeast DC chapter from Lonely Planet’s Washington, DC guidebook.
First-time visitors assume Capitol Hill is all about power-broking and wheeling-dealing. Truth is, it’s a traditional neighborhood, where people live in brownstone row houses in a community that revolves around Eastern Market. The feel of the area is more cozy borough than clandestine backroom.
- count the statues, ogle the frescoes and visit the chambers of the folks who run the country under the big white dome of the Capitol
- be wowed by the sheer volume of, well, volumes at the Library of Congress
- immerse yourself in the good and bad sides of human nature at the haunting United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping and Sports & Activities.
