Whether it’s museums, music, food, or movies, Washington offers just about everything you could want in a city and often for free.
SIW is located in Woodley Park, which is clustered between three neighborhoods – Cleveland Park, Adams Morgan, and Dupont Circle. Although, there are many restaurants in Woodley Park, we don’t have groceries, bookstores, movie theaters, or concert venues.
