Fodor's Review

At the only national park dedicated to the performing arts, the massive, outdoor Filene Center hosts close to 100 performances from June through September. They range from pop and jazz concerts to dance and musical theater productions. The National Symphony Orchestra is based here in summer, and the Children's Theatre-in-the-Woods delivers 70 free performances. During the colder months the intimate, indoor Barns at Wolf Trap fill with the sounds of musicians playing folk,

country, and chamber music, along with myriad other styles. The park is just off the Dulles Toll Road, about 20 miles from downtown Washington. Wolf Trap provides round-trip bus service from the West Falls Church Metro stop during events.
