Cleveland Park is a Washington, D.C., neighborhood located along Connecticut and Wisconsin Avenues, and Rock Creek Park. It is named not for the city in Ohio, but for President Grover Cleveland; he had a summer estate in the area in the late 1880's. Many homes in the area have porches because it was known as a summery, breezy location.
Cleveland Park offers fine dining, shopping, and a neighborhood of lovely and bright late 19th century homes. There is an active Citizen Association, which is incorporated and raised money for a local library branch. The Cleveland Park Club, another civic group, is a private, non-profit community organization complete with a newly renovated clubhouse and heated pool.
Enjoy movies at the historic Art Deco Uptown Theater, or go for a stroll in Twin Oaks Park, Rock Creek Park, and the National Cathedral. Dine at neighborhood favorites Cactus Cantina, Cafe Deluxe, Cleveland Park Bar and Grill, Ardeo, and 2 Amys. Sushi Sushi is well known for being one of the least expensive sushi spots in the city, and you can grab a cupcake when you're done at Something Sweet. Nanny O'Briens offers steep discounts on wings on certain nights, and you can work it off at the Unity Woods Yoga Center the next day. Just down the street, you'll find the National Zoo in Woodley Park. In short, you'll be well-fed and entertained in Cleveland Park.
Transportation is easy, with buses running up and down Wisconsin and Connecticut Avenues, and the Cleveland Park Metro Station at the intersection of Connecticut and Ordway.
