Adams Morgan is a “Walker’s Paradise” with a Walk Score of 98 and is home to 18th Street, best known for its bars, restaurants, and retailers lining the pedestrian-friendly street. Bordered by Dupont Circle to the south, Mt. Pleasant to the north, and Rock Creek Park to the west, this neighborhood is known for its active scene. Adams Morgan also offers many quiet side streets filled with townhomes, rowhouses, condos, and apartment buildings. Public transportation is plentiful, with two nearby metro stops (Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle stations on the Red Lines) and several WMATA Metrobus lines running through the neighborhood. Elevated demand for apartments, combined with the vacancy rate hitting a historic low, created record-breaking rent growth in 2021. Proximity to work, school, public transportation, and nightlife entertainment have long made Adams Morgan one of the most popular renter submarkets in the District of Columbia.
