Capitol Hill/Eastern Market
Have an Adventure in Capitol Hill
Most people are at least somewhat familiar with Capitol Hill. After all, it is the seat of the U.S. government and home to the nation’s state Capitol. However, there’s a side of this famed neighborhood you probably don’t know—the part of it that’s a little bit less like a tourist attraction and a little bit more like . . . well . . . just a neighborhood. If you want to explore that fun, exciting, and lesser-known side of it, then read on!
Visit the Bartholdi Fountain
Don’t feel bad if you want to experience some of the touristy stuff Capitol Hill has to offer. After all, some of that stuff is pretty amazing. A particular favorite is the Bartholdi Fountain, which you’ll find tucked away on the U.S. Capitol grounds. This beautiful fountain, which dates back to 1876, is perfect for a photo op and is a true must-see for any Capitol Hill visitor.
Eat at Ambar
After you’ve gotten your tourist’s fix, check out a place that the locals love: Ambar. This amazing restaurant features affordable brunch specials and a whole lot more. It’s just one of many wonderful places to dine in the area, but if you could only choose one, it should be this one!
Explore Eastern Market
Finally, if you’re lucky enough to be in town on a weekend, do yourself a favor and head to Eastern Market. On the weekends, it transforms itself into a farmers’ market, arts and crafts fair, and a haven for vendors and food trucks. There’s something for absolutely everyone to enjoy.
As you can see, there’s more to Capitol Hill than just what you know. Your best bet is to see it all! Have the touristy fun but, then, turn around and check out some of the lesser-known places that just might turn into personal favorites of yours.
