Washington D.C is a striking and fascinating town with an overload of cultural diversity. There are so many amazing places to visit where you’ll have a great deal of fun while sightseeing and learning about the town’s notable history. Besides all the well-known touristy monuments and museums, here are a few of my favorite neighborhoods to have fun in DC.
One of my favorite places is Georgetown, which is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Washington, D.C.. It is quaint with century year old houses and buildings sprawled along tree-lined streets that have retained all of their charm through the years. A whole lot of Washington’s crème de la crème and politicians live here and it is no wonder, it is among the most beautiful areas in DC and is close to almost everything, such as the downtown. Strolling along Georgetown’s streets can easily transport you back in time, as even most stores have maintained their awnings, doors and general architecture. These stores are often family businesses and sell one of a kind foods, artifacts, clothes and furniture pieces at high-end rates. Georgetown M Street provides a far more modern shopping and dining experience with a wide variety of restaurants, shops and well known chains and brands to satisfy all tastes and budgets.
While in DC you may want to have a night out. If you want a unique nightlife experience, you must go to Adam’s Morgan. It has a high selection of restaurants, clubs, and lounges. The distinctiveness of the area is you will encounter all sorts of people from all over the world and of all walks of life. It is one of the only areas in Washington where gentrification is not so clearly pronounced, adding to its charm and character. There are various venues featuring all kinds of music and food to cater to all. Everyone just comes to Adams Morgan to party together or to eat its famed giant slices of pizza out while laughing out loud and making acquaintances with others since it is customary on a typical Adams Morgan night out.
Dupont Circle is also a must see for visitors during the day or at night. It’s home to many embassies, historic websites and restaurants from all cuisines. There are many exceptional book stores strewn all over the area that are worth a trip, and are perfect places to have coffee or brunch.
