Around Capitol Hill
South of Capitol Hill is the Anacostia River, and the neighborhood straddles Northeast and Southeast D.C. Many of the homes are single-family row houses, duplexes, or town homes of various architectural styles. Because of the historic designation of the neighborhood, no homes are taller than three levels. The homes south of H Street have been remodeled and updated, while north of H Street remodeling activity is underway. There also are some low-rise apartment and condominium dwellings.
Walk toward Eastern Market to the commercial corridor along 8th Street known as Barracks Row, featuring some of the city's most celebrated restaurants. The neighboring H Street corridor has seen revitalization in recent years, attracting high-end world cuisine, new-American fare, and gastropubs to the area.
Capitol Hill is a bustling, family-friendly neighborhood. Weekends are crowded with people flocking to the neighborhood's restaurants and bars. Walkers, tourists, bicyclists, moms pushing strollers, military personnel, and runners fill the sidewalks--be prepared to share the road.
You will never run out of dining options in Capitol Hill. Most residents spend Friday nights at the area's restaurants or bars kicking back and unwinding after a busy week. There is a good mix of dive bars, sports bars, and upscale bars along with restaurants ranging from fast food to fine dining.
Shopping at Eastern Market is a pit stop for Capitol Hill residents. An enclosed market established in 1873, Eastern Market offers artisanal foods, fresh flowers, baked goods, meat, and seafood. During the spring and summer months, the market spills out into the street, adding additional vendors and a popular flea market with clothing, housewares, art, eclectic items, and interesting foods from around the world.
