Explore Penn Quarter

This bustling area sits right beside central Downtown D.C and waits patiently for it to clock out and let its hair down. A combination of historical architecture with a growing presence of modern elements, this neighborhood features high-quality retail, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs all within walking distance of each other. The Smithsonian, various theaters, and the Verizon Center are also here for a healthy dose of art and sound.
