“Walk or ride....both ways are great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

I take my older visitors on a driving tour of this area, and they love it. I found the home of Woodrow Wilson here, and it is open for visitors. Well appointed, and knowledgeable docents.

“Know your flags! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Really neat area - do park and walk around! Fun to see the different flags and how the architectural styles of the embassies reflect the nations. Continue up Massachusetts to the National Cathedral!

“embassies of the world.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

You can see the different embassies and take a look around the area. The embassies have more or less the same architecture, its just the paint color which is different. If you can leave this activity for last or just drive by one day quickly it litterally just takes a 5 - 10 minute walk and you are done.

“Fun drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Fun to drive slowly by and look at the different flags and place names. Have never walked along here, may be something to try one day.

“Very nice, worth a walk through the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Kinda off the beaten path, but worth the walk, on a nice day. Not too much around the area, but I recommend talking a walk looking at the embassies. Other than that, try to count how many diplomatic plates you see or figure out what letters go with what country. It passes the time.
