Surrounding you are some of the 75 embassies, chanceries and diplomatic residences that lend a vibrant international presence to Sheridan-Kalorama.

As welcome neighbors, diplomats and embassy staff can be seen enjoying the neighborhood parks, sharing in local events and strolling on the sidewalks of this elegant neighborhood.
