Dart along DC's most iconic streets by kicking your adventure off outside the vintage Atlas Performing Center on eclectic H Street for culture nostalgia, then jive to the jazz musings of performers at a quirky gallery. Watch a red streetcar pass rows of colorful brickstone apartments and mosaic murals before popping into an upscale store for a touch of city class. "Black Broadway" beckons next, where you'll two-step to the beat of a diverse neighborhood that never sleeps, starting with stage-to-the-legends Lincoln Theater, before snapping a pic of icons embedded in a mural. Remember greatness outside the home of inspirational educator Mary McLeod Bethune, or two-step and twirl to the childhood home of jazz royalty Duke Ellington for a "Sentimental Mood".
Along world-famous streets, follow a host who knows all the good spots, like the renovated Art Deco movie house Atlas on H Street, then it's off to a 20th-century building gallery, draped in exposed brick. Pass a rainbow of Notting Hill-like apartments overlooking streets adorned with bright street art and a candy red streetcar, then enter chic Shopkeepers Gallery. Follow in the footsteps of legendary musicians along U Street next, a treasure chest of black history and innovation. Pass the grand Lincoln Theater, once stage to trumpet king Louis Armstrong, then walk on the wild side through art-filled corridors bursting with vibrant colors. Pass the dollhouse-like home of an iconic educator, then hop over to 13th Street, beaconed by the home of jazz royalty.
