The unofficial gateway to D.C.
This residential Northwest DC neighborhood is a village within the city that has it all. With proximity to the National Zoo and Rock Creek Park, and a sprinkling of hiking trails, parks and playgrounds, a mellow, suburban feel prevails. Connecticut Avenue boasts specialized eateries such as Medium Rare, exclusively offering Steak Frites, and Sugar Magnolia, a tiny market of imaginative ice cream sandwiches and pre-packaged picnic fare. Shop for unique, handcrafted gifts at Wake Up Little Suzie. With Van Ness, Cleveland Park and Woodley Park Metro stations at hand, Connecticut Avenue is an effortless escape.
