Adams Morgan is one of the oldest and nicest neighborhoods in Washington DC. Absolutely diverse, community involved and contemporaneous.
One of DC's most interesting neighborhoods, home to some great restaurants and cafes, plus lots of charming architecture. Not too far from DuPont Circle. Take a walk around.
