Washington, D.C. Feature


Five Great Outdoor Experiences in DC

Bird-watch on Theodore Roosevelt Island: Take in the spectacular scenery at this tucked-away wildlife sanctuary.

Get a new perspective on the cherry trees: Take a leisurely trip in a paddleboat around the Tidal Basin in spring.

Get moving with picture-postcard motivation: Run or bike on the Mall with Washington's monuments as a unique background.

See the National Zoo’s giant pandas: Washington's love affair with the adorable pandas at the National Zoo has gotten a welcome extension; Mei Xiang and Tian Tian are extending their D.C. stay until December 2015.

Walk or ride along the C&O Canal: An excursion along the historic waterway comes with nice views of the Potomac River; you may even see a bald eagle.
