Adams Morgan is one of the most culturally diverse neighborhoods in DC, which makes it a great place for Trabblrs to explore if they're interested in learning about how desegregation and immigration shape communities. The area is full of independent ethnic stores and restaurants, which act as perfect pit stops when on a self-guided heritage trail!
The Roads to Diversity heritage trail by Cultural Tourism DC will take you back in time as you read the stories behind the Victorian row houses and bright murals that define Adams Morgan. You'll also see the site of the first Toys 'R' Us and learn about once-prestigious Lanier Heights.
Navigating this two-hour tour is a breeze thanks to the 18 poster-sized, illustrated signs that mark each stop. All you have to do is print the map, which can be found here and head to the meeting point!
Word of advice - don't leave Adams Morgan without having a falafel at Amsterdam Falafelshop on 18th St. NW and Mintwood Place NW.
Meeting point: Outside Banana Leaves Asian Restaurant & Sushi Bar. The closest Metro stop is U Street on the Green and Yellow Lines.
Leaders, this tour is best done in the morning to early afternoon when the bar crowds are at bay.
