Posted on Wednesday, Apr 17, 2019

Do you believe Washington D.C is the most interesting city in the world?
Living in D.C. provides a plethora of opportunities to meet new people, see different cultures, and try new things.
In this blog post, we are going to explore three interesting neighborhoods in Washington, D.C. There are 15, but I have chosen the three where I have spent the most time.
  1. Adams Morgan is a lively, diverse neighborhood known for its nightlife scene. During the day, the vibe reminds me of downtown Austin, Texas. You can find creative types lounging in coffee shops such as Philz Coffee. Visiting Madam’s Organ or Jack Rose Dining Saloon provides an excellent night of singing or dancing.
  1. Capitol Hill is the most popular area to live, with rowhouses dating back to the 19th century. Capitol Hill has a vibrant nightlife and a diverse dining scene. The main attractions are the U.S. Capitol, Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. The nearby neighborhood of Barracks Row hosts oyster houses, foodie-centered restaurants, and multiple bars.
  1. National Mall features the Washington Monument rises magnificently across the sky. Exploring this swath of America’s most popular national park, visitors can honor American heroes who sacrificed themselves to serve this country. To the right of the Washington Monument, visitors can see the Smithsonian National Museum, a series of world-class institutions. Every week, the Mall hosts different-sized events.

Washington D.C provides a ton of neat neighborhoods for exploration. So, where are some interesting neighborhoods you have visited in D.C?
