Get off the beaten path and into the real DC!

Less than two miles north of the White House, DC’s Northwest neighborhoods feel a world away from the towering monuments and expansive boulevards of downtown Washington. Sixteenth Street and Adams Morgan have long been recognized for their rich history and cultural diversity. Home to ambassadors and politicians, revolutionaries and civil rights leaders, these neighborhoods have hosted and housed every type of District resident, from working class to social elite. Visit one of Washington’s best hidden oases, hear stories of movers and shakers, protests, disasters, social scandals, and get off the beaten path!

Sturdy walking shoes, bottled water, and comfortable clothes are recommended.
