Washington’s diverse neighborhoods each present distinct experiences for food, entertainment and culture. At DC Hood Hopper, we appreciate the unique character of every neighborhood. We love the blogs that are devoted to a single ‘hood, but our goal is to invite you to go beyond your favorite spots, step out of your backyards, and check out what another set of city blocks has to offer. Whether you are a local DC resident looking to rediscover your fellow neighborhoods, or a short-term visitor interested in trying new parts of the city, we hope you’ll enjoy our take on ‘hood hopping.
