Washington Dc Entertainment

Does washington DC have an Entertainment or Shopping district, similar to Times Square in NY or Union Square in SF or Rodeo Drive in LA? That really determines my trip, if I go there or New York. Well, I have your answer right here. DC doesn’t have one glittery, central shopping area with gigantic stores like in Times Square. It has a strip of high end shops – Dior, LV, Tiffany’s, Saks – in Friendship Heights/Chevy Chase. There’s Georgetown which is slightly lower end chain stores – like Gant, J Crew, Nike, and Lacoste. There’s a strip of vintage shops, small boutiques, and furniture stores around 14th and U Streets NW. And there’s the Chinatown and Metro Center area which has “fast fashion” type shops like Forever 21, H&M, Zara, and Urban Outfitters. If the number one priority on your trip is shopping then DC probably doesn’t offer anything spectacular compared to NYC. Most people come to DC for the history, culture, and civic education that you can’t get elsewhere.
