Can anyone tell me about the area known as "Foggy Bottom"? Are there attractions there or is it "just an area"? It is an area known as "Foggy Bottom".
Foggy Bottom takes its name from the morning mist that comes off of its southern boundary, the Potomac River. But the neighborhood, which stretches up to include the West End just west of Georgetown is a clear winner. Every night of the year at 6 p. Kennedy hosts free concerts, dance shows and other entertainment on the Millennium Stage in the Grand Foyer.

Breakfast was good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Only one problem - shower faucet handle was missing and had to be fixed creating an inconvenience for the guest traveling with us.
The naturally foggy surroundings of the area gives it its own unique name - Foggy Bottom. Unfortunately, its name does not highlight the excellent quality of music, dance and drama practiced in the neighborhood every single day. The John F Kennedy and Potomac River-side performing arts centers are popular landmarks to watch free shows during the night while kayaking and canoeing on the Potomac River and then grabbing a sample of extraordinary Indian food at the Rasika West End is an activity during the day.
