"Seems more like a drive anywhere but DC"
Rock Creek Parkway is an amazingly peaceful, nature-filled, 4-lane parkway in Northwest DC. You will drive along the rushing Rock Creek and pass beautiful landscapes that make it seem as if you are driving along mountainsides. The cliffs are gargantuan as they separate the city from this beautiful street. Be careful though because the road is extremely windy and not particularly wide. If you can help it, drive a smaller vehicle along Rock Creek Parkway. Access various parks that seem secluded from the rest of DC, but don't try to walk or park on this street. You might get hit.
