Think hip, say Shaw, one of oldest neighborhoods in D.C. Row houses, edgy fashion shops and trendy eateries thrive in this walkable urban area with a strong African American history. Two historic theaters, Lincoln and Howard, still host shows as they did when Duke Ellington, Pearl Bailey and Cab Calloway performed. Snap a selfie with The Duke’s statue at the Howard, then hit 7th and 9th Streets to savor seafood, soul food and fresh baked sweets.
