The Kennedy Center is located on the banks of the Potomac River in Washington, D.C., at the intersection of New Hampshire Avenue, NW, and the Rock Creek Parkway. It is accessible by Metro (via the subway and bus lines), by taxi, and by car. If you are driving, refer to the directions below to find the most efficient route for getting to and exiting the Center.
