Things To Do in Washington, DC

Phillips Collection Phillips Collection

Touted as America's First Museum of American Art, the Phillips Collection is a museum that not only presents an impressive collection of exhibits that feature impressionist, post-impressionist and contemporary American art, it also boasts a rather intimate charm. That mood is perfect for a romantic afternoon date with that special someone. Stroll through the galleries and discuss your impressions of these works and see where the conversation (and the afternoon) goes from there.

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.

Supreme Court of the United States Supreme Court of the United States

Seize the opportunity to see our government in action with a visit to the Supreme Court of the United States. The Neoclassical architecture of the building is stunning, and the outer spectacle of the Court is just the beginning. While the court term runs from October through June, you can actually sit in on an actual Court session. Seating is limited, however, so plan to arrive early at the Front Plaza if you want a seat. When the Court is not sitting, you can still take in a lecture or presentation every hour on the half hour.

Fahrney's Pens Fahrney's Pens

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.
