cleveland park - washington dc

Showcasing decades of growth and development, Cleveland Park’s hidden historic district presents a full range of homes and buildings, some of which can be dated back to the late 1800s and turn of the century. That’s when electric streetcars first began connecting up Cleveland Park to downtown, and neighborhood growth really began to take off.

Spurred by its new status as a streetcar suburb, Cleveland Park grew rapidly. Historians suspect a number of homes in Cleveland Park may have been constructed as summer homes for those working in nearby Georgetown.

Some of the first homes went in along Newark Street, Highland Place and Macomb, not far from the spot where President Grover Cleveland once owned a home. The diverse neighborhood quickly became

It may not have the name recognition as neighboring Georgetown, but some might say Burleith is Georgetown’s hip baby brother. If you enjoy the offerings and convenience of Georgetown, the completely residential neighborhood of Burleith provides a seemingly more modest, and slightly more affordable alternative to its pricey neighbor.

Unlike the Victorian row houses of Georgetown and Dupont Circle, you’ll often find brick houses on corner lots, with modest, yet distinguishable, row houses constructed in between. Many of the homes of Burleith were built in the 1920s.

While this is the more traditional architecture of homes throughout the neighborhood, you will also find a range of other architectural designs, including some Tudors that date back to

The neighborhood is full of churches and long-standing businesses that have long been a part of the community for generations. While boasting a relatively easy commute into the city,

h street corridor - washington dc

With a countless array of places to go and things to do, the Atlas District is, quite simply, arts and entertainment galore. This busy nightlife district is packed with lively bars, live music venues, coffee shops and restaurants.

While it’s a bustling area today, the Atlas District has certainly seen its ups and downs over the years. Hit hard by rioting in the late 1960s, it’s taken decades to bring the neighborhood back. Efforts began to gain speed in the late 1990s when a local restaurant owner hatched a plan to transform the three-block area with music venues and bars.

More diverse than some other neighborhoods today, the Atlas District sits less than two miles from the National Mall. This makes it easy to explore some of DC’s hippest,
