Houses, Parks, Churches, Shops -- and Quiet with private guide
A walk through one of the oldest and most lovely parts of Washington -- Capitol Hill. For a very long time it was not fashionable and so it was not torn down for new buildings. Now it is all restored and ready for a visit.
What to see? So many nice streets and parks and cafes and churches . . . we can stop at Eastern Market, the longest-operating public market in DC, or the wonderful old Carbarn now renovated as condos behind its sturdy brick walls, or cute little Duddington Street where neighbors put out benches on their sidewalk, or the Marine Barracks (the oldest still-functioning military installation in the country), or the 1860s Naval Hospital now a community center, or beautiful Lincoln Park and watch people walk their dogs or . . . well, so many possibilities.
