Historic Congressional Cemetery: The Dead Tell the Best Stories
The fun of Congressional Cemetery isn't the dead congressmen. The people buried here include D.C. scallywags, civil rights heroes, and at least one man killed by a tiger. As they say: "You don’t have to be famous to be buried here -- just dead." You might find a festival, a foot race or an outdoor movie underway, and certainly dogs at play. Your guide is a public radio reporter and a dues-paying member of the cemetery's innovative dog-walking club. The cemetery is open dawn to dusk daily. (Dogs admitted by membership only. If you hate dogs, come on Saturdays 11-3pm, when even member dogs aren't allowed.)
