Vibrant Entertainment, Galleries & Washington, DC Art
After the city's bustling workday winds down, the nation's capitol comes alive with diverse and dynamic entertainment options. Live theatrical performances take place almost nightly at famous venues like the Kennedy Center and Ford's Theater. If you prefer your entertainment with a bit more edge, head straight for the U Street Corridor where you'll find offbeat boutiques, ethnic cuisine and live music that is fueling the area's revival. Then, after a dynamic night out, spend a leisurely day strolling the exhibits at renowned galleries like the National Gallery of Art or Touchstone Gallery, or browse the peaceful art and sculpture gardens within steps of the National Mall.
The Kennedy Center is home to the National Symphony Orchestra, Washington National Opera & Suzanne Farrell Ballet.
