To step out of the box just a little while in Washington we recommend kayaking at the Kay Bridge Boathouse or putting among miniature models of Washington's historic places at the H Street Country Club miniature golf course. The marines' marching at sunset, in front of the Marine Corps War Memorial (Iwo Jima statue), is one of those unforgettable experiences you can have in Washington. Go shopping in Georgetown and check if there's an interesting event at the Kennedy Center.
