Cleveland Park Neighborhood Tour

Quick Details

Child 5-16 years old
Private Tour

Explore Washington’s largest church and original streetcar suburb!

Dubbed “The Queen of the Washington Suburbs” in 1903, Cleveland Park is one of Washington’s most beautiful and architecturally eclectic neighborhoods. From pastoral farmland, to the summer escape of wealthy Washingtonians, to one of the first “streetcar suburbs,” Cleveland Park is well worth exploring. Named for Presidential resident Grover Cleveland, the neighborhood boasts fanciful Victorian mansions, gorgeous gardens, and the second largest cathedral in the United States.

Visit the National Cathedral grounds, stroll along picturesque tree lined streets, see the oldest home in DC, and experience the city like a local!
