Quick visit to Chinatown on our last DC visit. Great lunch in the area and cool authentic shops; great place to find 100's of choices of chopsticks and tea sets!

We had a great night photo session with the Archway. This is definitely worth a stop if you are ever in DC.

This is a nice place, there are many good options of restaurants, stores, movie theaters and even the Arena is close by. I really like the many options of Asian food you can find close by the archway. Good place to visit while in DC.

Really cool place to drop by. Neat shops and restaurants to explore. There's a metro stop right on the corner and the convention center is walking distance.

This used to mark Chinatown in Washington DC but now that most of old Chinatown has disappeared along with the great Chinese restaurants, one wonders why the arch exists still? Perhaps to remind people of a different time in DC.

You know you are in Chinatown when you see this arch. It is also known as the Friendship Archway. This Chinese gate is built over H Street at 7th Street. It was designed and built by Alfred H. Liu in 1986. It is larger than...More

It's mostly what people do is just drive right up to it on the street, photograph it then move on. The homes and such in this little Chinatown are somewhat run down in comparison to many other areas near by. It's probably a good idea...More

An iconic spot to walk through. Love the crosswalk underneath the arch and the area is full of life. A great place to take a stroll and find a unique restaurant.
