The Embassy Row hotel is a nice hotel with quiet rooms in the heart of DC. The personnel is very friendly, it is a home away from home. It's even better now it is just renovated. Plenty of nice restaurants and bars around Dupont Circle and the metro around the corner.

You have to walk a looooooong way!!! No metro stops, only bus stops. Yeah you get to see embassies and old buildings, but wasn't that interesting. The Islamic Centre was interesting to see.

We started to walk from Dupont Circle to Washington Cathedral on a sunday. It is a 2.5 mile walk. We walked 1.5 miles and hailed a cab. It was easy to get a cab. The morning walk was beautiful and I'm so glad we did it this way. We ran across a farmers market right of the Circle and wandered... More

I had some business to take care of along Massachusetts Avenue on December 5, 2014. Exiting at the Dupont Circle Metro Station, I took the wrong turn and ended up walking along the Embassy Row. There are embassy buildings on both sides of the Avenue and I could not resist taking pictures of the beautiful statues and plaques I saw... More

My husband and I love to walk, so we set out from the White House and worked our way over to Embassy Row. As you stroll by foot, you can stop and look at the buildings, and read any notations that are posted. Some of the buildings are beautiful, others quite plain, but regardless, it's an enjoyable walk and we... More

We went trick or treating along embassy row with our kiddos. Although it is mostly college students during Halloween, it's still really neat to go to all the embassies, learn about their cultures, and visit multiple continents in a single afternoon.

Whilst in the Trolly Bus just be aware of the number of Embassies that you will pass when you travel down Massachusetts Avenue from Scott Circle toward Observatory Circle. There are 180 Embassies in Washington.

Washington DC has so many embassies, perhaps for every country in the world? There are various parts of DC with embassies but these pictures are from around Dupont Circle. I love the row house architecture which houses most embassies. A highlight was finding the statue of Gandhi in front of the Embassy of India.

It is interesting to drive down Embassy Row to see how the different countries try to represent themselves in Washington. Aside from their flags, they do try to be unique. For example, the British Embassy has a red phone booth in front, just like the ones in London. Brazil has a very modern looking building. Côte d'Ivoire has a statue... More

Whenever I'm in DC I love walking through and around Embassy row which is an architectural adventure especially for someone from the Western U.S. There are gorgeous buildings everywhere along the leafy streets. That said I wouldn't recommend it for children who are likely to get bored. It's not too far from DuPont Circle which has lots of tasty restaurants.
