Rock Creek Park & Smithsonian National Zoo
Escape to sprawling Rock Creek Park, offering 2,000 acres of green space – trees, trails and original dining al fresco. At the park’s edge, tour the home of D.C.’s most famous residents – giant panda cubs Bei Bei and Bao Bao – at the entertaining and exotic Smithsonian National Zoo.
D.C.’s urban retail renaissance starts with Dupont’s art galleries, bookshops, and chic boutiques, spreads along U Street bursting with eclectic, edgy storefronts, and continues to the trendy 14th Street corridor, boasting curated fashion, independent designers, vintage finds, and upscale brands, all tucked in and around dozens of acclaimed restaurants.
