Bloomingdale is located in the northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C. There is a commercial area concentrated near the intersection of Rhode Island Avenue and First Street where unique shops, restaurants, and pubs provide shopping and entertainment venues for area residents. There is also a farmer's market operating on Sundays between R Street and Florida Avenue. A lot of new development has attracted new businesses to the area and there are some excellent eateries now located nearby. Although there are no large chain stores, many food markets supply locals with necessities and specialty treats. 


The weather for dog walkers in Bloomingdale is typical of the Washington, D.C. climate. Hot, humid summers and cold, snowy winters can be uncomfortable for you and your pup on long walks if you are not prepared. Try to choose times of the day when temperatures are less extreme, dress warmly in winter with good footwear, wear cool clothing in summer, and pack water so you and your pup stay hydrated.

Bloomingdale is bordered on its north side by Channing Street, on the south by Florida Avenue, on the east by North Capitol Street, and the west by Second Street. Bloomingdale is a designated historic district and features beautiful Victorian row houses with unique architectural features like turrets. Churches and vintage apartment buildings also feature attractive architecture and beautify the area. Yards and gardens are very well maintained and create a pretty backdrop when walking through residential areas. 

The terrain is fairly level and there are sidewalks for pedestrians and pets to stay separate from roadways. These sidewalks feature brick surfaces, keeping in character with the area's historic charm. The neighborhood is located on low lying land at the foot of a hill that rises to the northeast. This characteristic makes the region susceptible to floods as it was once the pathway of a creek and creek bed, now long since buried.

The Gage Eckington Dog Park is located just a few blocks west of Bloomingdale in Le Droit Park. This park is managed by the Bloomingdale LeDroit Dog Park Association (BLDPA). The park features an enclosed off-leash area and a double gate to prevent escapees. There are separate areas for small and large dogs and waste bags are provided to clean up after your furry friend. 


Le Droit Park features playgrounds, open areas, and walking paths. Dogs must remain on a leash unless in the enclosed dog park. 


Bloomingdale is also home to the secluded Crispus Attucks Park which is centrally located and accessible on foot if you know where it is! Access by an alley between U and V Streets will take you to this quiet park with open lawns and shade trees. This park is just over an acre and is privately owned, but accessible to the public.
