DC: A Most Capital Vacation

Washington, D.C.’s cherry blossoms are as famous as the city itself, and seeing them is a delight. But as warm weather makes a welcome return, Spring brings much more to the nation’s capital. Here are just a few things to explore on your visit.

Free Concerts Daily

The Kennedy Center, home to the National Symphony Orchestra and the Washington National Opera, offers free concerts every day at the Millennium Stage, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. These free performances run the gamut from gospel and classical to bluegrass and jazz, featuring both established and up and coming artists. Performances are free every day at 6:00 p.m., no tickets required. There’s also a convenient free shuttle from the Foggy Bottom Metro Station.

 

Taste the World

Perhaps nowhere in the nation will you find a more diverse dining scene than D.C., with restaurants serving specialties from every corner of the globe. There’s Russian caviar at BlackSalt, fiery Thai at Little Serow, and a world of flavor waiting at every stop. Keep up with the latest at Eater D.C.

 

Take a Hike

Staying active is easy in the capital, with opportunities for recreation indoor and out. Kayaking on the Potomac is a great way to see the city from a different perspective.  Key Bridge Boathouse has all the equipment you need for fun on the water, including stand-up paddleboards. The region’s great public transportation system allows you to easily escape the city and explore the surrounding area… take a day trip and check out Annapolis or the beautiful Shenandoah National Park.

Stay in Style

In the heart of the city, Capitol Hill is a luxurious new rowhouse perfect as your base inside the Beltway. The rooftop patio and west-facing rooms have dramatic views of the Capitol Dome. There are four bedrooms with en-suite baths, a dreamy light-filled interior, and garage parking for one car … all in a great neighborhood where you can walk to restaurants, shopping, and parks. Enjoy!
