111 Places in Washington That You Must Not Miss
Step away from the traditional highlights of the city of innovators, great benefactors, artists, Presidents and hucksters to discover innumerable interesting and unknown sites, artifacts and other treats in Washington, DC. Visit places that are unknown and hiding in plain sight, that may go unnoticed or simply be unknown, whether to a visitor or a long-time resident.
Come play a round of miniature golf among the cherry trees. Buy original art works out of a vintage cigarette machine. Catch a show at one of the refurbished theaters where Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington used to gig. Commune with the Godfather of Go-Go music in his memorial park. Get away from the tourists and peace out by walking a labyrinth alongside the Potomac River. Try an American Indian salad made of obscure root vegetables in a café called "Let's Eat."
