All reviews open house dupont circle massachusetts avenue nice walk european union great britain united nations beautiful area washington national cathedral walking tour couple of hours flags embassies architecture vp diplomatic halloween
We walked almost 5 miles looking at the different embassies. The architecture is amazing. The neighborhoods are safe and easy to navigate. A definite DC must do!! The benefits are it’s free and you get plenty of exercise!
Today we explored the surrounding residential area; to see how the ‘diplomatic corp live’ so to speak. So, we headed off (walked) to DuPont Circle which is the start of ‘Embassy Row’.
Pretty quiet on the streets being Sunday morning but came across the local...More
The best time to go is on a Saturday or Sunday. The parking in front of the embassies is free and easy on the weekends. If you are looking for specific embassies make sure you look them up and plot a map on Google Maps....More

Hello! Some of the embassies have open house days where you can tour and take a look inside, though I don’t recommend ringing the bell and asking to look, some of the embassies are very high security and I think that would be frowned upon.
Have fun on your trip!

The best way to see the Embassies is on foot during one of the first two weekends in May every year. These are the Embassy Row Open House weekends. In additiony the entire month of May has special world culture events and is called "Passport DC". There is an official website that has very good information on the open house. The first weekend is called the "Around the World" cultural event, while the second weekend event covers only European countries and is officially called "euopenhouse".
