On this walking tour of Embassy Row in Washington DC, you’ll see some of the city’s greatest mansions and hear stories about the families who once lived there. They were the super rich of the Roaring Twenties. There were parties with 2,000 guests. One million dollars was spent on a dog’s birthday. Daughter of Theodore Roosevelt, Alice Roosevelt Longworth lived here and her famous line was “If you don’t have anything nice to say, sit next to me.” Her friend, Evelyn Walsh McLean, lived a few houses up and carried the curse of the Hope Diamond. Embassy Row isn’t short on stories of affairs, gossip and even a grisly terrorist bombing. Dupont Circle to Sheridan Circle is now filled with embassies but it was once the playground of the wealthy. You’ll see Kalorama and the homes of two former presidents. View homes of other famous people and the Spanish steps.
