My favorite neighborhood. Great restaurants. Cheap parking. Close to Nationals and DC United Stadium. Metro nearby
This part of town has been reborn and new things are being added all the time. Huge assortment of restaurants, beautiful boardwalks and parks, trapeze school, free family concerts every Friday (summer), District Winery and much more.

“Given that this is a city with a long, complicated history, there have to be a few ghosts roving around the city, right? Hear about conspiracies, assassinations, and murders that took place right where you're walking. This may seem like a Halloween activity, but honestly, ghost tours are even more fun during seasons when spookiness isn't the standard. Tickets are $17 a pop for adults.”
“The only venue on this list that also happens to be a house of worship, Sixth & I maintains its identity as a multi-denominational synagogue while doubling as a community center and space for the arts. Standing on the eponymous corner in Northwest Washington DC since 1908, Sixth & I has served as a hub for spiritual life in the capital for over a century -- it was an African Methodist Episcopal church from 1945 until 2002 -- and continues to foster thoughtful discussions and cultural events through its programming. Matisyahu was the first contemporary artist to perform at the venue, and they have continued to book outstanding talent in their stunning historical space.”
