Arlington


Virginia

Walking Tour:Capitol Hill

Take the Metro Blue or Orange Line to the Capitol South Metro stop.
Join a tour group to view the rotunda, Statuary Hall and the original Supreme Court and Senate chambers.

After the tour, you are free to go around on your own and explore many other parts of "Capitol Hill", which includes the Supreme Court (across the street) and the magnificent Library of Congress (also across the street).

Two other buildings of interest in this area are the Folger Shakespeare Library at 201 E. Capitol Street, SE, and the Botanic Garden Conservatory, at 245 First Street, SW, the oldest continually operating botanic garden in the United States.

To browse shops or get a quick bite, visit bustling Union Station, just north of the Capitol.
To return to Arlington from Union Station, take the Red Line back to Metro Center and change to the Blue or Orange lines; remember, the latter two are on the ground floor
