8 U.S. Capitol Grounds Tips
It's a two hour walk. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. You will start at the top of the hill, go down, around the Capitol and back up the hill.
There is plenty of food choices up Pennsylvania Avenue towards Eastern Market. Plus, the tour guide gave his suggestions.
The meeting place is right at the South Capitol Metro which is VERY convenient, however, we drove in on a Saturday and found free street parking a half a block away.
The weather was sunny. I wore light clothes with tennis shoes..
Parked farther and took a cab.
