The phrase "Embassy Row" typically refers to a stretch of Massachusetts Avenue NW in Washington DC - see Christopher Vo's writeup in another node for information on the city's street plan.

There are a total of 170 foreign embassies in the United States, all located in the nation's capital; other cities may only host consulates and diplomatic offices. Many of these embassies have addresses along Massachusetts Avenue NW, beginning north of the White House. Embassy Row extends through Dupont Circle toward the National Cathedral and Naval Observatory, but less than half of the embassies are actually on Massachusetts Avenue NW - many are on nearby streets, and some are clustered into small groups throughout the city. For one day each year, most of the embassies open their doors to the public through a tour program provided by the Goodwill offices.
