Logan Circle Walking Tour (Self Guided), Washington D.C.

Logan Circle is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Washington DC. This prosperous, historic district is named after John A. Logan, a Civil War general and senator, and features homes that date back to the 19th century. Late Victorian historic row houses, Richardsonian and Romanesque three-and-four-story properties and luxury condominiums line its wide boulevards. Some of the city’s most luxurious condos are situated here. This is a great place to come for a stroll among beautiful architecture and leafy avenues.

Meander along 14th Street, the neighborhood's principle commercial artery, where you will find art galleries, restaurants, home goods stores, performance spaces and trendy cafés. Logan's Circle encompasses two historic districts, the Logan Circle Historic District and the Fourteenth Street Historic District as well as featuring properties that are listed in the National Register of Histories Places. One foot may well be rooted in the past, but the other is firmly planted in the modern world, with its energetic nightlife and the achingly hip U Street Corridor. This predominately Victorian-era neighborhood hosts numerous bistros, bars, boutiques and live music venues.
