What to Do in Washington, DC


Washington DC is responsible for more melodious tones in its live music venues. Whether you’re looking for a radio-friendly stadium headliner or an only-in-DC acoustic set, you’re sure to find an act that’s (literally) music to your ears.

National Mall

The grassy area stretching from the Washington Monument to the U.S. Capitol Building, flanked by the museums of the Smithsonian Institution, is known as the National Mall. The Mall hums with activity every day—large events like festivals and demonstrations, and ordinary ones like tourist photo opportunities. Just west of the Mall lie many Memorial Parks, all commemorating presidents, wars, and other significant people and events in U.S. history.

Cultural Arts

Verizon Center, located in downtown Washington, D.C., is a state-of-the-art sports and entertainment facility. The arena offers world-class sporting events, concerts, family shows, trade shows and special events. It’s located in the Chinatown/Penn Quarter neighborhood.
