M Street is one of twelve lettered streets that run in an east-west direction, located both north and south of the Capitol. It stretches through the entirety of the Washington D.C. area. However, it is broken up by a major thoroughfare that allows access to I-295. For this reason, M Street addresses are followed by their geographical coordinates: NE, NW, SE, and SW.

The most famous parts of M Street are located on the Northern side of Washington D.C., running through the downtown area, past Dupont Circle, and later comprising a major part of the Georgetown University campus. It is the major street running in an East-West direction in the Georgetown area,

On the Northern side of town, M Street is one of the most widely-traveled but often interrupted streets, as it changes names numerous times, and disappears entirely at some points. This is largely due to the confusing traffic patterns of the Washington D.C. area, and also due to the amount of land that is taken up by the Union Station Rail Yard and the United States National Arboretum. In addition, some individual neighborhoods choose not to follow the simple grid pattern that defines most of the D.C. area, and lack the presence of an M Street altogether. M Street begins in the NW quadrant of the city at a landmark called the Key Bridge, and effectively terminates with arrival at the campus of Gallaudet University in the NE section of town.

However, M Street makes a reappearance as a key street on the South side of the city, starting about a mile South of the U.S. Capitol building. In this section of the city, M Street is effectively walled in, stretching from the Potomac River to the Anacostia River. In this part of town, M Street is home to many tourist attractions, including the Washington Navy Yard, Nationals Park, and a number of smaller outdoor parks and works of art that are worth stopping by to check out.

The fact that M Street is connected by two rivers in the Southern half of Washington D.C. doesn't go unnoticed, with access to several parks and boating clubs nearby. It is also a high-traffic area, leading to the streets that allow access to I-295, the John Philip Sousa Bridge, and the 11th Street Bridge. Those who live and work in the area know that M Street is best avoided during peak commute hours, unless you're exploring by foot, as traffic can become extremely congested on this street on both sides of the city.
