D.C. metro area residents don't want for things to do. The district is home to numerous cultural attractions, including several Smithsonian museums, theaters and year-round markets. The area also encompasses a blossoming restaurant scene that will please any foodie, and plenty of nightlife venues, from the trendy bars along the U Street Corridor to concerts at The Anthem on the Wharf and the iconic 9:30 Club.
District residents are also big sports fans with some championship-winning teams. They come together to cheer on the Washington Mystics (WNBA), D.C. United (soccer), the Spirit (women's soccer), the Wizards (basketball), the Capitals (hockey), the Nationals (baseball) and the Washington Commanders (football).
Outside the immediate metro area, residents can take advantage of hiking, camping and boating opportunities in Shenandoah National Park, Great Falls State Park and other outdoor spaces. Both southern Maryland and northern Virginia also feature numerous wineries and orchards.
