Amazing architecture and history. Even if you're not a political person it is amazing to see the inner workings of the government and the hustle and bustle in the Capitol.

Capitol Hill is a nice area to walk around. I recommend scheduling a tour, although that's a separate entry on TripAdvisor, so I'm not rating that here.
