Things To Do in Washington, DC

Discovery Theater Discovery Theater

In a world where your kids are enthralled by video games and computers, take them back to a time and place where a well-produced theatrical show meant something special. That place is the Discovery Theater. Part of the Smithsonian, this venue was founded in 1964 as the Smithsonian Puppet Theater. The ways that the stories are presented may have changed, but the original spirit is still very much alive. The kids will see fun and educational presentations and attractions that include everything from Polynesian dancing to live snake shows and dazzling magicians. The Discovery Theater is truly a great choice for family friendly fun.

Washington Capitals Washington Capitals

Residents of DC love hockey season, and with good reason. When the Washington Capitals hit the ice, the fans know they are in for a great display of speed and agility that is required to get that puck through the other team's goal. The professional sports team is a member of the Southeast Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League. "The Caps," as they are affectionately known, won the 1998 Stanley Cup Finals and have captured six division titles. The 2009-10 Capitals continued that tradition by taking home the franchise's first-ever President's Trophy for the team with the most points at the end of the regular season.
