We are only 1 block away from Capitol Bike Share - it's a fun and easy way to get around DC - and available for daily rentals at $7 a day. Very popular with locals and tourists alike. We also have multiple zip cars with in a 1-2 block radius. The Yards Park is a great place to play and picnic and is not well known among tourists. It hosts weekly outdoor movies (on Thursdays) in the summer and weekly (on Fridays) live music events from May - Labor Day. Eastern Market, 6 blocks away - an easy walk, is a famous institution. It is open 6 days a week as a historic market that hosts a baker, a fishmonger, a butcher, a florist, a grocer among other shops, but on the weekends, it hosts an outdoor farmers market, a huge flea market, and an artist's market - an amazing place to explore, people watch, and venue to discover great finds, great foods, and great non-traditional souvenirs and gifts. We are also within biking, jogging, metro, or walking distance from the award winning Sports and Health club, Capitol Hill that is in a converted historic school. If you want to keep your workout routine while on vacation or on an extended stay, access can be arranged at cost. Each day visit there is $15. The gym has multiple classes, award winning locker rooms with dry and wet sauna and jacuzzi, a rock-climbing wall, extensive free weights and machines, and basket ball and racket ball courts.
Our family of 4 lives in the unit above and though well insulated, some noise is audible between floors (not voices or music but heavy footsteps). Metro access is so easy, Regan International Airport - a fast cab ride or metro ride away. We can sometimes arrange for parking on the street but please inquire first. We are perfectly located for a unique and fun visit to our nation's capital!
We are exactly as pictured, one block to 2 metro lines, and well located on Capitol Hill.
Please note. DC is a diverse city. That means all different types of people live and thrive here. Additionally, it is a dense city and has programs to help people. That is reflected in the fact that DC has concentrations of subidized housing throughout the city: downtown, U Street, Columbia Heights, Shaw, and Capitol Hill in addition to other neighborhoods. That also means that many neighborhoods including Capitol Hill is a vibrant mix of people of all backgrounds. That is why we love living in DC and Capitol Hill and hope it is one of the reasons you will love visiting DC too.
