Capitol Hill is one of Washington DC's most historic districts. Pierre L'Enfant described the crest of the hill as 'a pedestal waiting for a monument' and shortly afterward, in 1793, George Washington laid the first cornerstone of the United States Capitol building, which now stands facing the city and the National Mall. Behind the Capitol building is the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. Union Station, at the northern end of Capitol Hill, is not only Washington DC's main rail terminal, but also one of the most popular tourist attractions due to its recent renovation.

Union Station, Washington's main rail terminal, was designed to act as a monumental gateway to the nation's capital city and is located conveniently close to the U.S. Capitol Building, the National Mall and other attractions such as the National Gallery of Art. Since extensive renovation in the 1980s, the Union Station building now houses cafes, restaurants, and stores. Points of interest within Union Station include the carefully restored main waiting room, a 96 foot chamber with gold-leaf ceiling, that is now used for Balls and other festive events and the Presidential waiting room in the East hall. Just outside Union Station are the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building and National Postal Museum.
