we did this via bus tour and the guide pointed out all the embassies. Was interesting as to the fact that they were all very different.

Walking the streets of Embassy Row really gives one of a sense of the importance of Washington, DC. All of the embassies and lobbying associations are awe inspiring, just a very interesting way to spend a couple of hours.

I ran from downtown out to the Naval Observatory along Embassy Row. It was one of my favorite runs ever. I loved being able to see the sites along the way, it was like a running geography lesson. The run out was uphill but I didn’t think it was terrible, the only issue was having to stop for intersections along... More

It is thrilling to see the embassies of the world here in the nation's capital. This is where the meetings take place, a convening of nations. Drivers can't take pictures with their cell phones, or use cell phones in DC - even at stop lights, or stopped traffic - so you really need to find a place to park on... More

We had just a little bit of that the finished up at the end of a busy day on vacation, and decided to Metro up to Dupont Circle, and walk at least some of embassy row after dark. Our presumption that most embassies would be lit, and statues and features showcased, and that it might be more impressive after dark…... More

Off of Massachusetts, this is where many if not most embassies are located. Some are refurbished historical buildings, some offer the best of the embassy's home country architecture. Some Ambassador residences are also located here. Architecturally interesting.

This hotel has all the standard requirements you would expect of a large hotel. The pool is dirty this I think is due to food and drinks allowed in the pool and around the pool edge. Give eating on the roof top a miss, expensive and not great. We did have a great burger in the cafe in the lobby.... More

I actually lived just down from embassy and usually after a lazy Sunday brunch, I would either meander down that way. Sometimes, actually usually I was accompanied by a companion and we would stroll around the various Embassy houses, remarking and laughing that we were probably being watched. Most times if there were someone outdoors they would give us a... More

Fun long walk to see many of the unique Embassies. Depending on how far of a walk you want to take and which Embassy you want to see is where you want to start. If you are up for a long walk starting at the British Embassy on Mass Ave and walking down to Scott Circle is about 1.5 miles.... More

It is nice to see so many different flags in one street/area. You can make a little mile to see it on the way from downtown to Georgetown.
