It is somewhat interesting to see all of the flags and cars with international flags, but there really isn't anything much to see here.

Took and after noon walk from our hotel to Embassy Row. Very interesting and eclectic collection of embassies and residences. It takes a couple of hours to walk around and you can visit Rock Creek Park.

Simply drove through Embassy Row during my visit. Nothing really special, but simply a very nice and clean neighborhood with good paint-jobs.

We stayed at the Fairfax last weekend so had some time to explore the Embassy Row neighborhood. Fun walking and exploring the different embassies represented. Many of them had statues or plaques that would tell you more about their relationship with the US.
