This is a beautifully restored area that is worth seeing. Located to the south and east of the Mass Ave food district, it is easy to get to and take in by car or on foot.

I'm so glad that we took the time to visit the Lockerbie District. It's a great place to take a walk along Massachusetts Ave. You'll see plenty of little shops and eating establishments. There are about three busy blocks. Don't miss any of them.

There are a couple of bed and breakfasts in and near the neighborhood, but recommend you use AirBnB or equivalent to find somewhere picturesque to stay.
