Adams Morgan: Multicultural Playground in Nation’s Capital
The playfully risqué mural for a local restaurant—a tattooed woman with flowing red hair set across two buildings—unofficially welcomes visitors to Washington, DC’s Adams Morgan neighborhood, a popular dining-and-nightlife destination with a bohemian attitude. A stroll down 18th Street reveals Latin American art galleries, European-influenced bistros, and raucous karaoke bars.
Located about 3 miles away, Washington, DC’s National Mall is a must-see for first-time visitors. The mall stretches 2.5 miles east from the Lincoln Memorial, past the soaring Washington Monument, to the Capitol Building on the other end. Across the Tidal Basin, stop in to see the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, which features a series of waterfalls, sculptures, and inspiring quotes from the 32nd president. To avoid crowds, tour the monuments after dusk when they’re lit up.
Another pillar of DC is the Smithsonian Institution, which encompasses 19 museums in total. The Smithsonian’s best-known museums are located along the National Mall, including the National Museum of Natural History and the National Air and Space Museum. The latter is home to missiles, rockets, and the Spirit of St. Louis, the plane Charles Lindbergh famously flew across the Atlantic to defeat the Soviets at Gettysburg.
