Start Your Adventures Here
Some say Washington DC is the perfect blend of NYC and Boston. We agree. It’s a fascinating city, giving you a taste of worldly cultures that blend through history, architecture, food, theater, and more. Experience the hustle and bustle of the city, while also the quiet retreat of the suburbs. Your perception of DC will change, like the seasons, depending on the neighborhood you explore for the day. From Parc Riverside, make Navy Yard your jumping off point for adventure, fun, and new opportunities.
I’m new here, where to first?
Walk in history. Within a mile radius from Parc Riverside visit historical landmarks. See the Capitol, the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, the White House, the list goes on. Standing at the steps of these neoclassical buildings, you’ll feel the energy that’s inspired monumental decision making for centuries. From government buildings to the Smithsonian museums, everywhere you go a piece of history walks with you.
I’ve done the monuments thing. What else is there?
Don’t worry. Living in DC is more than what you’ve seen on House of Cards or West Wing. The monuments are a staple, but so are this city’s nature scenes. From your apartment in Navy Yard, hop on the Capital Bikeshare, or your own, and explore the cherry blossoms at the Tidal Basin or fall foliage at Rock Creek Park. Both destinations make for the perfect Instagram picture and picnic backdrop.
That’s awesome. What about food culture?
You’re in luck. Dining in DC might as well be dining in Manhattan. Where the world’s leaders meet, so too do their cuisines. Try Laotian in Columbia Heights, Belgian in Barracks Row, or the classic DC half smoke at Ben’s Chili Bowl in Shaw. Whether you order-in or go patio hopping, the finest of international food is at your fingertips.
At Parc Riverside, we invite you to work hard, and play harder; and travel the world without ever having to leave the city. Schedule a tour to learn more!
