This Neighborhood is DC's Best-Kept Secret

The Palisades is a surprisingly lesser-known entity in Washington, DC. It’s hard to understand why, because with a laundry list of upscale eateries, shops, and an annual 4th of July parade, there’s no shortage of charms. Resting along DC’s Northwest border, The Palisades is yet another one of the city’s picture-perfect neighborhoods.

It's All About the Details in The Palisades

MacArthur Boulevard is The Palisade’s main artery, and its network of side streets receive little to no through traffic. Seemingly small details like this are what attracts a large number of young families to the area.

A bevy of restaurants have sprung up along MacArthur in recent years: BlackSalt, Figs, Et Voila', and Kotobuki, among many others. Retail staples like Safeway can also be found along the strip.

The Palisades' Spectacular Homes

Impressive homes along the Potomac River enjoy equally amazing sunset views. Construction took place throughout the 20th century, resulting in a blend of modern bungalows, Colonial, and Cape Cod style houses.

Resting idly on the Potomac River the D.C./Maryland border, The Palisades borders American University Park, Berkley, Spring Valley, Foxhall, and Georgetown
