Northwest DC - A Washington DC Neighborhood
Northwest Washington DC has several distinct neighborhoods, each reflective of its residents past and present. Georgetown is one of the oldest and most prestigious neighborhoods in Washington, DC. Just over the Key Bridge from Virginia, Georgetown is a welcoming sight, with its beautiful historic row houses, town homes, shops, and upscale restaurants. As their names suggest, Cleveland Park and Woodley Park are located in park-like settings along Connecticut Avenue. With stops along Metro's Red line, these areas are located near the National Zoo, American University, and the National Cathedral. Residents enjoy a nice mix of historic and new upscale single family homes, town homes, condos, and apartment buildings. These thriving neighborhoods offer good schools, fine dining, shopping, the Uptown Theater, and are a rare mix of urban and suburban living.
Kalorama is largely a mix of single family homes and town homes. It has a bit of an international feel, as it is home to Washington DC's Embassy Row, U.S. Congressmen and Cabinet members. Kalorama is also within walking distance of the National Zoo, Rock Creek Park and the great eateries and shops at colorful DuPont Circle. Closer to downtown, DuPont Circle is one of the most "walk able" urban neighborhoods, and is accessible by Metro's Red line through the Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan and DuPont Circle stations. East of DuPont Circle is Adams-Morgan, which is known for its international cuisine and nightlife, and is home to a virtual United Nations. Closer to the center of Washington, the Shaw neighborhood is home to Howard University, and has a rich history. On the upswing, Shaw is undergoing much restoration among its Victorian row houses and town homes.
