Washington, D.C. is the nation's capitol and, while it is home to the three branches of government, there are also plenty of other sights to see in this popular tourist destination. Visitors and residents can visit many of the Smithsonian museums, landmarks like the Washington Monument or Lincoln Memorial, or they can pop by the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts for the latest touring Broadway show!
However, Chevy Chase also has quite a few hills throughout the neighborhood. You and Fido will definitely find both rolling and steep inclines while walking. If you research your route first, you can make it as strenuous or as easy as you like, depending on the amount of exercise you are looking for!
