What to expect

Embassy Row is an iconic area of Washington, D.C., where over 170 foreign missions are located. Washington’s Embassy Row runs along Massachusetts Avenue from Washington Cathedral down to Dupont Circle plays host to a stunning array of mansions (hence the area’s prior name ‘Millionaire’s Row’) and is packed with power, wealth, and intrigue.

A walk down Embassy Row takes you past three cathedrals, one mosque, and the extravagant homes of Gilded Age tycoons that now house diplomatic missions. We’ll bring this part of the city alive with stories of how this area was born and grew, the tales that you didn’t know before, and other fascinating facts about this unique avenue. You’ll see:

  • The gothic masterpiece that is Washington National Cathedral
  • A neighborhood with two very different presidential families living in close proximity
  • The official home of vice presidents
  • Where the pope stays when he's in town
  • The site of the only state-sponsored act of terrorism in the US
  • The nation's official clock
