Adam's Morgan just might be my favorite DC neighborhood. It's where I feel most at home in DC. Perhaps because it reminds me so much of my beloved Brooklyn.
Adam's Morgan is eclectic, it's international, it's intelligent, it's cheeky, it's bohemian, it's artsy, and it's grounded.
La Vie Boheme in Adam's Morgan!
Along Adam's Morgan's main drag- 18th street, you'll find coffee shops, independent bookshops, yoga studios, bars, boutiques, and independent shops of all sorts.
It's a fun stroll.
Adam's Morgan is an international food lovers dream. You can find restaurants boasting food from nations across the globe from Ethiopian, Japanese and Vietnamese, to Korean, Ghanaian, Moroccan, French, Indian, Irish and Italian, the result is a creative melting pot of culture and art.
A lot less stuffy and irreverent than its upscale and stiff lipped neighbors, Adam's Morgan is hip, culturally diverse, family friendly and literate without the pretentiousness commonly seen around these parts.
Easy to walk, there's no need to stick to the main drag. Venture down side streets and take in the colorful row homes.
The National Zoo is nearby as are a handful of lovely parks and green spaces- my favorite is the gorgeous and historic Meridian Hill Park.
If you're planning a trip to the DC area, Adam's Morgan is a great neighborhood with a bohemian soul. If the rest of DC is too stuffy for your tastes, laid back Adam's Morgan is perfect for dinner, drinks, local shopping or a quick yoga class.
