Upper Northwest, "The Suburb in the City," is studded with lovely homes on picturesque streets away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Some of Washington's best shopping is along Connecticut and Wisconsin Avenues as they travel to Bethesda, Chevy Chase and Silver Spring, Maryland. Run, bike, horseback ride or just stroll in Rock Creek Park, the city's vast greensward. The Metro's Red Line or any of several city bus routes will take you quickly to Dupont Circle, the White House, the Smithsonian Museums and the rest of the Capitol's attractions. Bed and Breakfasts in Upper Northwest are also close to the National Institutes of Health and the National Naval Medical center in Bethesda, MD.

 

     The Upper Northwest area is filled with charming homes on beautiful, tree lined streets and is often called "the quieter side of Washington." Two main arteries, Connecticut Avenue and Wisconsin Avenue, are transportation corridors for the District's Metrobus and Metrorail, providing easy access to the heart of the Capitol and all its sites. If you have business in nearby Bethesda, Maryland at the National Institutes of Health or National Naval Medical Center, homes in Upper Northwest offer guests convenient and easy commutes.

 

 

 

Connecticut and Wisconsin Avenues play host to a wealth of shops, restaurants and movie theaters. In fact, you might feel like you'd never been to a movie before, after you see one at the Uptown. This classic movie palace shows first release films on the largest screen in Washington, DC; a 32X70 foot, curved screen with Dolby surround sound. In addition, visitors will find many interesting restaurants, quaint antique shops, and fine department stores (Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord and Taylor) lining these two thoroughfares.

 

 

    

Some of Washington, DC's best sightseeing treasures are located in the Upper Northwest section of the city. If you stay in this area, you won't want to miss the National Zoo (just off Connecticut Ave). The Zoo has a wealth of great animals, but none are more famous - or more adorable - than the resident guests from China, the Giant Pandas: Mei Xaing and Tian Tian, and their son, Tai Shan. The Hillwood Museum, the home of Post cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, is in the Upper Northwest area too. This private museum, while somewhat off the beaten path, is well worth a visit. Check their website for hours of operation.

 

 

 

 

 

Upper Northwest is also where you'll find "Washington's backyard." Rock Creek National Park is one of the largest, forested urban parks in the United States. Here you'll find picnic areas and well maintained trails for walking, running, cycling or rollerblading.  Like horses? The Park is host to the Capitol's only full-service equestrian facility (www.rockcreekhorsecenter.com); make your reservations and go for a trail ride through the Park.  Or, if all you really want to do is soak up some nature in an otherwise big city, find yourself a spot by the Pierce Mill waterfall and enjoy!
