Things To Do

As one might imagine from living in the nation’s capital, there is no shortage of available diversions to fill one’s time. Whether you’re enjoying the sun in Lafayette Park, located across the street from the White House, or strolling across the National Mall to visit the Constitution Gardens, the myriad of monuments, statues and museums that dot the landscape, an everyday trip across town turns into an historical adventure. Indeed, even the most casual of walks reads like a tour of National Historic Landmarks, from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument.


Parks & Recreation

The National Mall offers tons of great opportunities to explore, but there's also tons of great green space in the area to take advantage of. Rock Creek National Park is right in the neighborhood and has tons of hiking trails, horseback riding, and boat rentals.

If you're looking to see a little more wildlife, the Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens offers a fascinating glimpse at a wetland environment and the creatures that come along with it. Sign up to volunteer for restoration efforts or check out the annual Lotus and Water Lily Festival. There are plenty opportunities to get into nature right in the middle of the city!


Schools, Health & Transportation

The 45,000 school aged students living in the capital area are served by the District of Columbia School District’s 6,500 teachers, administrators and support staff. 

For higher education, Northwest Washington D.C. offers many college campuses. Such campuses include American University, George Washington University, Georgetown University, Howard University and the University of the District of Columbia.

The Palm Restaurant in Dupont Circle offers up a great surf and turf style fare and the opportunity to rub elbows with Beltway insiders as the Palm is just a short hop away from Embassy Row. 



With almost 700,000 residents calling the District of Columbia home, the capital has a varied economy. As one might expect in being the seat of government, nearly thirty percent of the people living in Washington are employed in the service of the national government in some fashion or another.
