We drove a few days ago to Washington DC and had to drive back the same afternoon to Charlotte, North Carolina. We arrived at 9:45 a.m. in the Philippine Embassy and my son and I left my husband to do the... More

Worth pointing out, but not a ton to see. Include visiting the Naval Observatory in this trip as that too is a quick drive by.

This isn't the Georgetown of brownstone townhouses. This is across Rock Creek and heading toward Dupont Circle. You really should get out and walk this area around Massachusetts Ave -- especially if the day is nice. I suppose you can enjoy it from car or taxi, but to really study the architectural details of these mostly Federal Period buildings, I... More

Some of the grandest architecture ever. See the different countries flags and the magnificent old buildings and former residential homes in DC.

It is somewhat interesting to see all of the flags and cars with international flags, but there really isn't anything much to see here.

Don't even try to walk this. It's a very long stretch of embassies on Massachusetts Ave northwest of Dupont Circle. But driving this long stretch can be fun. If you have kids, see if they can spot all the countries and all the flags. And all the limos and all the security!

Took and after noon walk from our hotel to Embassy Row. Very interesting and eclectic collection of embassies and residences. It takes a couple of hours to walk around and you can visit Rock Creek Park.

Simply drove through Embassy Row during my visit. Nothing really special, but simply a very nice and clean neighborhood with good paint-jobs.

The neighborhood surrounding Dupont Circle is a wonderful place to stroll and take in the global community that the embassies provide. The variety in architecture and landscaping is captivating. There are plenty of cafes and other places to relax along the way. This is DC sightseeing at its finest, away from the crowds at the Smithsonian and Mall monuments.
