Art, Entertainment, Food, and Things to Do in Washington, DC

August 13th, 2018

Because there are many options for things to do, places to eat, and experiences just waiting to happen in our nation’s capitol, it can be overwhelming to choose. Whether you’re a tourist in town for only a couple days or if you’re a seasoned Washingtonian, I’m willing to bet you’ll probably find a couple things you haven’t tried yet! I’ve included art, entertainment, food, and things to do in this comprehensive list because so many of you are asking for it.

From the Georgetown Waterfront Park to the Smithsonian Castle, is seems like there are endless opportunities for art, entertainment, food, and things to do on an adventure in DC. Rent a bike from Capital Bikeshare and ride along the National Mall or the Capital Cresent Trail; flip through rare art books at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, 3rd floor Betty Boyd Dettre Library and Research Center; or catch the DC Circulator bus to Eastern Market, Yards Park, or Georgetown for entertainment and food.

Finally, I’ve listed and linked my favorite restaurants, historical sites, entertainment venues, museums, art galleries, and outdoor activities. Just hover your mouse over the art, entertainment, food, and things to do option below and click to be linked directly. Most importantly, I’ve included a star (*) next to my absolute favorites.

If you’d have any suggestions for edits or additions for art, entertainment, food, and things to do, I’d love to hear them! Maybe I’ll add them to the list. 🙂

Liz, I so wish I would have seen this like 5 days ago. Family vacation planning and I literally was struggling to decide between DC and Seattle. And well we chose Seattle. But this article has now been archived. DC up next!!!
