Washington D.C.


District of Columbia (Washington D.C.)

Neighborhoods Capitol Hill

Capitol Hill
If you're addicted to C-SPAN or Sunday morning talk shows, chances are you've heard of "the Hill." Though the neighborhood itself may bear the name of the Capitol building, it stretches to include a residential district of Victorian rowhouses, parks and tree-lined streets as well as the Library of C ongress, Supreme Court building, Folger Shakespeare Library, National Postal Museum and Union Station. Eastern Market (the oldest operating public market in the city) thrives on Saturdays and Sundays, Barracks Row along 8th Street SE is dotted with shops, restaurants and bars, and the Washington Nationals call RFK stadium home.

Brookland
DC's Brookland neighborhood is nicknamed "Little Rome," and for good reason. It is home to more than 60 Catholic institutions, from the solemnly beautiful Franciscan Monastery to the stunning Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Catholic University of America and the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center also make their home in this Northeast neighborhood. And North America's first and most comprehensive bonsai museum can be found at the U.S. National Arboretum, a 446-acre natural paradise that features enchanting landscaped gardens, fascinating seasonal displays, intriguing aquatic plants and a unique, two-acre herb garden.
