Even Adams Morgan’s name is a testament to its multiculturalism; it was coined in 1955 when all-white John Quincy Adams Elementary school and all-black Thomas P. Morgan Elementary school were integrated and the neighborhoods combined. Today, Adams Morgan is without question one of the most diverse, lively, and interesting neighborhoods in the District, going so far as to earn a national “Great Neighborhood” award from the American Planning Association.
18th street is the heart and soul of Adams Morgan. This multiethnic and multicultural abundance of bars, restaurants, clubs, music venues, shops, and more is the lifeblood of DC’s dining and entertainment scene. Regularly thronged with people during street fairs or even any given weekend, 18th street will never leave a resident or a visitor to Adams Morgan unsatisfied.
Adams Morgan is indirectly serviced by the Woodley Park and Dupont Circle metro stations, but there are many Circulator bus lines and Capital Bikeshare stations to get around on. Housing in Adams Morgan is chiefly comprised of row homes and apartment buildings, though some condos exist as well. For the trendy DC resident looking for dining and nightlife in a central location, look no further than Adams Morgan.
