An historic cemetery that doubles as a dog park and urban oasis and meditation space. You'll note some famous residents interred here too. Grab a tour pamphlet at the gate house and explore the lovely grounds.

A DC gem off the beaten path. The departed residents of Congressional Cemetery, colorful in life, continue to inspire, amaze, and entertain. Docents seem to really love these people, and you will too when you hear their tales. Congressional is a lovely neighborhood park as well as a great stop for visitors. It's friendly to dogs and to all people, living and deceased.

Awesome place to visit, has the graves of John Philip Sousa, J. Edgar Hoover, a Lincoln conspirator and more! It's also a bit spooky!
