A few hours left before leaving for the airport. Walk quickly to Embassy Row. So many beautiful buildings. Stand under the flags flying depicting the country that owns this land, you are now visiting this country!! Our family had a lot of fun trying to name the countries before reading the plaques on the buildings!

If you can possibly make your trip to Embassy Row in May, you will find that there are 2 Saturdays when dozens of the embassies open their doors to the public for tours/food/games/giveaways. They are open on these days from 10-4 and although the lines can get long, the chance to see the insides shouldn't be missed.

Anyone who visits Washington DC should visit Embassy Row. You learn so much about other cultures and countries. You can tour some of the embassies and should take advantage of this opportunity.

Driving the main drag, as a tourist, at the start of rush hour, was not the best of decisions... especially if you're the driver and want to see all the mansions and their flags... But my passengers loved it! NOTE: Need to realize that not all of the embassies are located exactly on the one street! Some are on the... More

Enjoyed an amazing stroll thru Embassy Row area! So neat to see so many nations represented and all the flags flying proudly. Near Dupont Circle, restaurants and Metro stop. Checkout the old fire call boxes too.

My wife and I did the walk from DuPont circle to,the national cathedral with frommers in hand. Beautiful sites and views. Lots of history. It is uphill and quite a workout but worth it!

Different flags of different nations… some of the embassies much larger and much more impressive than others (way to go Australia!) but it's a pleasant walk on Massachusetts Ave.

All the countries of the world that the US recognizes have an embassy in DC. The security around each embassy is very tight. It is very interesting to see the different people coming and going from the embassy including those dressed in their native attire.

Going to Embassy Row when in DC is a must-see. So many embassies, all beautiful and all so very different. You will see flags, artwork, statues and more. Keep your eyes open for signs or history everywhere. You can take a bus or walking tour, but I prefer to do a walking tour on my own. You could walk and... More
