If you are visiting in downtown DC, you can't avoid Pennsylvania Avenue. So take some time and enjoy walking along the route from the White House to the Capitol. For those of us living in the Midlands, we watch presidential inaugurations, see the size of crowds for those events, watch parades etc. So it is wonderful to actually be there and become more familiar with this avenue.

Kind of snooty but isn't that what it is meant to be. It isn't a daily drinker but a worthwhile one time visit. Expensive and sexy.

This was the perfect location for us. We were staying at the Washington Marriott at Metro Center. We were able to walk to the White House and to the National Mall. It's also a short walk to Chinatown where they have many wonderful restaurants. There's an old postal tower (in the Trump Hotel) where you can get great views of the city (free public access). The hockey stadium is nearby if you're going to watch the Capitols play. There's lots of shopping including a Macy's. There are many bakeries/cafés within the Penn Quarter. You can find a taxi just about anywhere in this quarter, or you can use the Metro Center to take a subway into other parts of DC. I've stayed in many different parts of DC in the past (Crystal City & Farragut), but this part of town has been by far the best area I've stayed in to date.

It has lost its Chinese heritage, with barely an Asian eatery in sight. Yes, signs with Chinese letters, but that's about it...its growing, with new spots opening all the time, but nothing outrageous. Waiting for basic amenities, so if you are a tourist staying in this area close to so many museums, other than the drug stores and coffee shops, really no place to buy food to prepare. No bakeries, no florist, no shoe repair, no grocery store. On the other hand, busy, bustling, especially with the Verizon Center here and lots of restaurants.
