DC Neighborhoods

Make your own discoveries in the neighborhoods of Washington, DC

Locals know the difference between Washington and DC. The latter is a city made up of neighborhoods, where people live and visit, where restaurants and pubs buzz, where cabs are hailed, hotels are busy and friends laugh. No politics. No power plays. No problem. There’s so much to love about each one of DC’s neighborhoods, from history on Capitol Hill and high-end boutiques in Georgetown to the beauty of Southwest Waterfront and the hustle and bustle of H Street NE. There's also performing arts in Penn Quarter and a 24-hour diner in Adams Morgan. Get familiar with the lay of the land and find your place in DC.
