Woodley Park has a number of great restaurants and bars--and the red line will take you to even more. The great thing about Woodley Park is that you get the tree-lined streets and quiet of the suburbs, while still getting the amenities of the city.

Photography

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.
