The National Zoo is located in a residential neighborhood in the Northwest quadrant of DC in Woodley Park, steps from the Woodley Park Zoo/Adams Morgan Metro Station Red Line and served by multiple city buses and the popular circulator bus. Vibrant Connecticut Avenue is well known not just for the zoo but also for its international restaurants, red brick condos, and residential neighborhood.
