Washington DC is a large city, and all that comes with it.
However, there are very strong communities & neighborhoods, essentially, little villages.
Bloomingdale is one of those, with an entire neighborhood of large townhomes, many restored, and others on the way to being restored.
The tour has been going on for a few years, and is always a great way to spend a leisurely Saturday afternoon (Oct 15, 1-5pm) there's also an Art Show... really, just a nice way to spend the day.
Check out their Bloomingdale HomeTour website for more details, and hopefully, we'll see you there.
