Washington, D.C.

Dupont Circle / Embassy Row / Cathedral Heights

Embassy Row

The walk down Massachusetts Avenue between Dupont Circle and the National Cathedral will introduce you to the variety of neighborhoods that make up Embassy Row. Starting at Dupont Circle, the Embassy buildings vary in size and space to create an urban streetscape, then evolve into a uniform size and setback near Sheridan Circle and become more campus-like as one approaches the Naval Observatory. Walking through these neighborhoods gives a visual history of Washington building styles and the city’s development through the years.
