About Federal Triangle

The triangular area of downtown Washington, D.C. in the northwest quadrant of the city, Federal Triangle is a bustling community where much of the work of D.C. happens. It's the home to the John A. Wilson Building, the main municipal building of D.C. government that serves as City Hall for District residents, as well as the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, the second-largest federal building. Just a block north of the neighborhood is its most famous neighbor--the White House.

Getting Around Federal Triangle

Around Federal Triangle

With the large number of municipal and federal buildings inside Federal Triangle, there are very few housing options available, aside from a few apartment homes located near the Navy Memorial and National Archives buildings.

Federal Triangle, with its high number of government officials, lawyers, lobbyists and other influence peddlers, has a number of respected restaurants. Mostly on the higher end of the culinary scale, restaurants represent South American, American, fine-dining, and fast-casual cuisine.

You'll see a lot of government officials and federal employees around the neighborhood, but expect things to quiet down once the work week is over.

Friday night in Federal Triangle should begin with dinner and drinks at any of the fine establishments in the neighborhood. Then head to a show at Warner Theater, a performance venue featuring live music, comedy, and everything in between. You could also check out the latest touring Broadway show at the National Theater. Also check out the Willard Hotel, a legendary D.C. landmark that has hosted every U.S. president since Franklin Pierce.

Sundays are a slow time in Federal Triangle. A stroll to Freedom Plaza on Pennsylvania Avenue NW between 14th and 15th Streets will put you in front of the Willard and other eateries for a quick sandwich and coffee. You can sit at Freedom Plaza and watch the skateboarders and visitors pass by, or cross the street at Pennsylvania Avenue and sign up for a White House tour.
