Great area and views

This is a great area for a morning walk (less busy) to view the architecture and the homes of our visiting dignitaries. With Dupont Circle nearby its a no brainer!

Loved seeing so many beautiful embassies with amazing architecture, flags, and memorials. There's such a range as you walk along the large area, from Albania to Zimbabwe, Moldova to Mauritania, Togo to Tanzania - loved it.

I used to live in the area called Embassy Row in Dupont Circle, WDC. It was my apartment 722 at 2000 massachusetts ave, nw., washington, d.c. 20008. Very peaceful area, but hard to find parking near by.

This was part of our city tour and we enjoyed seeing the different types of architecture and hearing stories about the various embassies. Without a guide, I think we would not have noticed as many details.

We did a driving tour of embassy row. I would recommend going during the open house tours. I would love to see the inside decor on many of these interesting homes.

I was taken on a driving tour through this area. It was very interesting to compare the styles and sizes of the houses and compounds. I would love to go back and visit more slowly, and search out some of the countries that I have visited, to see what their embassies look like!

Every year in May - it's possible to visit many of the Embassies here in DC. Plan to start your day early as the lines get long...very fast. Each Embassy is different in it's approach to the tour. Sometimes - it's even the home of The Ambassador....and sometimes you get to meet him or her.

This a very interesting area! Not all the embassies are here, but the majority are. The buildings are historic and beautiful, and you can walk right into many of them!

On the second week of May they open up all the embassies to the public. Its really cool to walk thru these gorgeous houses. Lots of the embassies gave out sample of cocktails specific to there countries, maps, and other items. Some of the lines were very long to get in, but all moved pretty fast. A ton of people... More
