The Best of Washington, DC Tourists' Guide

Welcome to Washington DC Night Life, RMC,
Washington, DC nightlife is one of the most unique in the world.  Washington, DC is the seat of " The " World Power, and the nightlife event planners at various entertainment venues, whether they be a bar, night club, art gallery or theatre are consciously aware of this and the central importance of first impression they must make to become successful. One of the immediate results comes form the greater efforts in how preparations are made in each event - as at any time a world leader could be showing up..  Foggy Bottoms, Connecticut Avenue near Massachusetts and Georgetown ( where the Students / Scholars hang-out ) districts are world famous.

The nightlife consumers are a combination of congressional legislators, government and military staff workers in whose hands the affairs of a world power are handled, as well as an increasing core of diplomatic workers and representitives.  They, we, are very demanding, and that demand has created both a very diverse of entertainment and nightlife city wide, or beltway schedule of events to emerge while at the sametime representing the best of American culture and world International entertainment expectation.  Thus , for example, you will find a night club with an Egyptian cultural motif, an African theatrical performance, upbeat cabaret acts, the finest in Le' Ballet, not to mention some very hot Latin / Salsa dance scenes, and the most excellent of International restaurants all competiting for this core of nightlife entertainment consumers.

This has given Washington DC nightlife a true International twist, and with the increase of globalization the upward spiral and diversities in the future events are assured.  Thus securing an additional element in the United States world leadership roles in both cultural and entertainment.

National Mall
No stores here, just monuments, grass, and museums. Remember the Nation has a LONG front yard. Don't try to make Grandpa walk all the way down and back unless you have all day, and he's really fit. REALLY.
The Newseum - a 250,000-square-foot museum of news - offers visitors an experience that blends five centuries of news history with up-to-the-second technology and hands-on exhibits. Fun for all ages. Note that there are some emotionally disturbing exhibits, but you can pick and choose. There are also many movie theaters. You can spend an entire day here.
Washington National Cathedral
It's Episcopalian, not Catholic - but all are welcome. It's got all the stuff the European cathedrals have, including flying buttresses and gargoyles. This one has Darth Vader, too. And a new underground parking lot.
The Phillips Collection
This is one of the few art museums in DC that asks for an admission fee, but it is worth it. The Phillips houses some of the great modern classics.
The Smithsonian Institution
The Smithsonian is more than one museum. See the list below for some guidance on where to start! Note Ben Stiller is making his next Museum movie at the Air & Space museum!
The National Zoo
The National Zoo is free and besides the pandas, there are a lot of other animals that are starving for attention. Like my friend Kristen in the cat house. ; )
International Spy Museum
If you have kids around 7-15, this is a great place with lots of distractions. They can touch and listen and push buttons and watch videos and dash from exhibit to exhibit. Be aware it's often very crowded, and it's not free. Nevertheless, adults often find something interesting here, too. And the neighborhood includes the Verizon Center, Ford's Theater, and the Hard Rock Cafe - a fabulous place to take the family after an exhausting run around the Spy Museum.
