Logan Circle

Peek through the windows of trendy boutiques and elegant homes in this nearly-Downtown neighborhood.

Regal DC blends with upstart attitudes in Logan Circle, a neighborhood as equally known for its stately architecture as it is for its hip cafes and trendy specialty stores. This neighborhood’s two historic districts (not one, but two) boast some of the city’s most sought-after nocturnal hotspots, including one of DC’s most beloved beer bars. There are several Metro stops nearby, but Logan Circle lacks its own—this keeps the crowds at bay.

The neighborhood is walkable, with plenty worth walking to -- high quality restaurants to satisfy every taste, Whole Foods for your shelf in the fridge and pantry, a CVS (hope you don't need it), and Studio Theatre's excellent productions. Metro bus lines on 14th Street take you easily to the Smithsonian Museums and various Federal Government buildings."

Airbnb works with local photographers to capture the spirit of neighborhoods all around the world. The photography on this page includes work by:

As a freelance photographer based out of DC, I’ve had a lifelong desire to be submerged in different cultures, meet people of all walks of life, and eat bizarre foods. While my personal favorite escape is surfing remote warm-water breaks in Central America, I loved working on this project and discovering the many hidden subcultures that make up the diverse and often-mislabeled city of Washington, D.C.
