I’ll be honest, I’ve recently rediscovered dark and stormy drinks and their consumption may have influenced the make up of this list. Nevertheless, these streets are pretty freaking awesome and you could probably venture a few blocks north, south, east and/or west of the ones mentioned here and be pretty impressed:

13. 4400 block of Illinois Ave, NW

12. 1300 block of 4th Street, SW

11. 600 block of South Carolina Ave, SE

10. 2300 block of 1st Street, NW

9. 1200 block of 10th St, NW

8. 100 block of U Street, NW

7. 1700 block of Church St, NW.

6. 700 block of North Carolina SE

5. Unit block of Quincy Pl, NE

4. 1400 block of Vermont Ave, NW

3. 2800 block of Davenport Street, NW

2. 1300 block of Corcoran Street, NW
