“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
Penn Quarter is a D.C. revitalization success story that began with the opening of the Verizon Center, the District's largest sports and entertainment arena. Today Penn Quarter has a sleek, modern city feel, with excellent restaurants ranging from the casual Protein Bar chain to fine-dining flagship Minibar. Here you'll find the fun International Spy Museum and the internationally acclaimed National Portrait Gallery, all within easy walking distance of the White House, the Mall and Dupont Circle. If traveling via Metro, take the Gallery Place/Chinatown or Archives/Navy Memorial/Penn Quarter stops.
