Cool Things To Do in Washington DC

People think of Washington DC as a strictly political and historical town, but Washington DC's fun factor happen to be extremely high! James Bond wannabes will love the International Spy Museum, which provides a fascinating look at the world of espionage and how it's affected our past and present. Birchemere has played host to some extremely well-known performers - from Garth Brooks to Henry Rollins - and the small venue (500 seat capacity, with seating in the Music Hall and standing in the Bandstand) makes it a cozy way to enjoy both your friends and the music. No kidding, National Museum of Crime and Punishment has the feel of a haunted house, complete with dark passages, faux stone walls, a crawl space, and scary figures. Seriously, mannequins dressed up as dangerous characters are placed here and there. Active Washington DC visitors can take a break from the boring stuff and find plenty of cool things to do in this bustling city.
