Washington DC offers a near infinite amount of choices for how to spend your day. The Metro system running through the city makes all of these exciting options easily reachable. Keep reading for a few suggestions on how to spend your day in DC from our metro accessible ROSS apartments!
Located at the Navy Yard-Ballpark Station on the Green Line, Nationals Park is easily accessible. Gather your friends and make your way to support DC’s Major League Baseball team at their home field. The cheapest tickets are only $10, making this excursion affordable for the whole group. A day at the ballpark is a great way to sit back, relax, and get a suntan… so don’t forget a hat and some sunscreen!
Theodore Roosevelt Island
For history buffs, hop on the Silver Line and take a ride to Theodore Roosevelt Island. This year-round park is open from dawn to dusk. There are no fees for entering the park, which makes it a perfect option if you’re looking for a place to take a casual stroll on a sunny June afternoon.
There are various trails to be explored, as well as a memorial plaza featuring a statue of Roosevelt himself. The park is also mostly wheelchair accessible, so feel free to bring the whole family!
The National Zoo
Elephants and pandas… need we say more? Located right off of the Red Line is The National Zoo. Focused on the conservation of nature and the saving of species, this park’s grounds are open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and offers free admission. Animal lovers of all types will be thrilled during a trip to this zoo! Check out the Asia Trail, Cheetah Conservation Station, the Bird House, or see American bison located in the upper zoo. In the valley section you can find yourself looking at bald eagles, bears, and elephants! And if you’re walking around the lower zoo, take a look at the Small Mammal House, great apes and cats, and the Reptile Discovery Center.
