Disability access to this building can be found on their website. Also the outside grounds are heavily patrol by guards and disability parking has been reduced in around this area. Very long walk around the capitol with no benches to rest.

The heart of America's democracy is here in the Capitol, seat of the Congress and Senate. Lots of interesting rooms. Catch a tour if you can through the visitor's center.

Not necessarily my favorite thing to see in DC. It is of course worth a visit just for being the capital and for being so iconic but really it is just another government building. Unless that is really your thing I wouldn't plan to spend too much time there.

The Capitol Building is home to America's legislative branch. Here laws are made (or not made) and American Presidents take the oath of office. It is most easily recognizable for the grand dome, which was completed during the Civil War. Along with the White House, it is one of the most potent symbols of American power and democracy.

Not every traveler knows that you can enter the Capitol Building at any time during the office hours, stop by your state's Representative's or Senator's office, have a bite to eat in the downstairs cafeteria and join a guided tour of the building. That is a one of a kind experience and almost a must to do when you visit Washington, DCRecommended for:Budget Travelers

Sign up online to get your free tour pass and skip the lines if you are going during the summer. The tour was surprisingly interesting and worth the 45 minutes or so it took - allowing you to see more of the building and offering a lot of stories on the different statutes along the halls.

It's actually pretty thrilling to see the Capitol building in person. It's really a beautiful building and stands out brilliantly at the end of the mall. The interior of the building is beautiful and full of history. Be sure to take a free tour!

Walk 15 short blocks or ride the Metro (Blue or Orange lines, located around the corner) and in two short stops you'll find yourself at our Nation's Capitol. Worth touring, the building is beautiful and rich in history.

I worked as a tour guide here one summer, so I became intimately familiar with the U.S. Capitol Building. It's a cool area, especially when you go into the big legislature room and see how the American political system works. I would recommend coming here even if you are not interested in politics.
