Blame it on House of Cards (or Scandal, Veep, and the other addictive shows set in the heart of our city). Fact is, we're completely enamored with Capitol Hill. Aside from its status as the country's most powerful 'hood, we'd also argue that the Hill is one of the District's most scenic destinations. Who can argue with expansive parks, ample bars and restos, and tons of darling rowhouses? Oh, and it's also full of charm, personality, and a whole lot of really good grub. Whether you're a local hunting for new spots or a total stranger to the turf, you'll be hooked after this personal tour. Let's go!
