Things To Do in Washington, DC

Ford's Theatre Ford's Theatre

Ford's Theatre has a built-in drama all its own. This is where John Wilkes Booth shot President Abraham Lincoln, and that unsettling episode still resonates in the structure today. Take a tour that retraces the incident, and you can also get a look at some of the interesting backstage areas. And if you are visiting for a performance, the excellent acoustics and inviting seating arrangement will ensure that whether you are watching a play or a musical production, the entertainment takes on a deeper significance when you consider that you are sitting within some truly historic walls.

Remember when people actually wrote notes to each other as to say thank-you or congratulations? You can harken back to that era by finding the perfect pen with which to express yourself at Fahrney's Pens. While it may be true that technology has replaced the need for actual writing, the incredible selection of pens from such fine makers as Cross, Waterman, Montblanc and Park that Fahrney's Pens features may just bring back the lost art, one pen stroke at a time.

Smithsonian Institution Smithsonian Institution

Deciding that you will take a day to see the Smithsonian Institution is allowing too little time, as the Institution is much wider in scope than you may have originally thought. It actually encapsulates 19 museums as well as the National Zoo, all home to must-see exhibits and attractions. Some of the more popular stops within the Smithsonian include the National Air and Space Museum, the national Museum of American History and the National Museum of the American Indian. The depth and breadth of everything here justifies the time and space that it takes to see it all.
