Penn Quarter is situated between Pennsylvania Avenue and Chinatown. Many locals considered Penn Quarter is the west of Chinatown (Verizon center) to Penn Ave with new buildings (office and residential). Penn Quarter and Chinatown can be accessed easily by many buses and Metro (green/yellow/red) lines. There are plenty of stores, museums, restaurants in this area (lunch and dinner), and park for everyone. The Shakespeare Theater, Spy Museum, and National Portrait Gallery are all in the heart of Penn Quarter. Plan to spend a day in the area when visiting D.C.
