Is McPherson Sq. Right for You?
McPherson Neighborhood: Being in the heart of DC’s commercial district, this location is ideal for business travelers. For tourists, this area affords easy access to the White House, but you will have a bit of a longer walk to the rest of DC’s attractions. For visitors seeking an area with a strong neighborhood feel, Farragut and McPherson may lack charm. The area around Farragut and McPherson Squares is mostly a commercial district. With K Street—famous home to Washington lobbyists—as its northern boarder, this area is bustling from 9 to 5, but tends to clear out after dinner and on weekends. Like many of the city’s urban parks, the Squares draw a number of DC’s homeless, but generally you should expect to feel safe walking around. At McPherson Sq. you’re an easy walk to top tourist attractions on the National Mall.
