Residentially, you will typically see traditional D.C.-style townhomes lining the eastern part of this popular neighborhood. Commercially, Capitol Hill is home to several coffee shops, churches, a few hotels, local restaurants, a flea market, gas stations, convenience stores, a hospital, and a public library branch. Capitol Hill also has plenty of access to public transportation. Even more exciting, however, Capitol Hill is home to the nation's capitol building, a few office buildings for senators and representatives, the Supreme Court of the U.S., and the Library of Congress. 

Other notable attractions in Washington, D.C. include the National Mall, national monuments and memorials, the many Smithsonian museums, and unique neighborhoods with distinct personalities.

Capitol Hill is a largely urban neighborhood, as it is the central hub for the United States government. There are plenty of greenways, but they are mostly manicured terrain. The benefit of having such an urban neighborhood, however, is having plenty of well-maintained sidewalks and trash cans strategically placed around the community! 

However, unlike its name may imply, Capitol Hill is actually a fairly flat neighborhood. You and Fido shouldn't have any issues or experience any steep inclines while out and exploring our nation's capital!

The boundaries of Capitol Hill include Constitution Avenue, Massachusetts Avenue, Maryland Avenue, and Pennsylvania Avenue to the north, 8th Street and 13th Street to the east, Potomac Avenue and the Southeast Freeway to the south, and South Capitol Street to the west. State streets are always main roadways through Washington, D.C. and, as such, likely have most of the commercial properties and a higher volume of traffic.

For having so many important, government buildings, Capitol Hill has a plethora of greenways for you and your pup to explore! Greenways include Stanton Park Playground, Market Park, Marion Park, Garfield Park, Folger Park, Seward Square, the Spirit of Justice Park, the greenways around the U.S. Capitol Building, and several unnamed greenways located in triangular intersections throughout the neighborhood. 


Many of these are well-manicured greenways with paved walking paths, statues commemorating historical figures, and plenty of places to sit and rest. These are often popular spots for local workers to enjoy their lunches at. Garfield Park, the largest greenway in the neighborhood, also has a playground, a few athletic fields and courts, and a picnicking area. 

While there are no pup parks in Capitol Hill, there are four within the surrounding neighborhoods. These include Kingsman Field Dog Park to the northeast, Virginia Avenue Dog Run to the southeast, Yards Park Dog Park to the south, and Lansburgh Dog Park to the southwest.
