Capitol Heights -- named for its location near Washington, DC -- provides the perfect location: near DC, near the Capital Beltway, and minutes away from FedEx Field, home of the NFL's Washington Redskins. It is also close to the Anacostia River, the United States National Arboretum, and Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling. Nearby Fort Circle Park provides Capitol Heights residents with 10 miles of hiking trails -- it is also a popular concert venue and is home to Fort Dupont Ice Rink.

Capitol Heights is a terrific location for your DC-area apartment, only about seven miles southeast of downtown. Hop on the Metro at the Capitol Heights Metro Station for a fast, car-free commute. Despite being so close to the historic sites of DC, Capitol Heights was a rural area with no paved roads or streetlights. In 1910, the 200 residents in the area named their town "Capitol Heights," but it wasn't until 1980 and the arrival of the Metro Blue Line that the town began to grow.
