National Park,


Pennsylvania Avenue is among the world's most famous streets. It is known the world over as the heart of the Nation's Capital. America's history has marched, paraded, promenaded, and protested its way up and down the Avenue. It is no wonder that Pennsylvania Avenue is called the "America's Main Street." The Avenue is more than just another city street; it is, rather, America's Ceremonial Way.

Hours + Fees


Pennsylvania Avenue NHS is open to the public 24 hours a day. For additional information see the Ranger staff at the Old Post Office Tower.
