Fodor's Review

In addition to being the home of the Washington Capitals hockey and Washington Wizards basketball teams, this 19,000-seat arena also plays host to D.C.'s biggest concerts, ice-skating events, and the circus. If Lady Gaga comes to town, this will be the spot to see her! Drivers need to park in one of the many underground garages close by, but there are several convenient Metro lines, too. During warmer months be sure to check out the frequent street concerts on intersections surrounding the Center.
