Its red roof shining from the banks of the Potomac River, historic Mount Vernon bears the torch of gentleman planter and inaugural commander in chief George Washington via the home where he lived for 40 years. It takes about three hours to explore the estate, a visit which begins with a walk through the grounds and a short film before proceeding to a guided tour of the mansion. There, time-travelers visit 1799—the year Washington died—as recreated by preserved original furnishings and detailed reproductions. The home's windows look out on 50 acres of plantation, with 12 original structures, gardens, and a forest trail hemmed with holly and laurel. The museum and education center weaves a rich audio-visual tapestry of the general's life, filled with 23 theaters and galleries and 700 original artifacts that include his famous dentures.

Master falconer and bird-of-prey expert Mike Dupuy shares his love of the 4,000-year-old sport of falconry during exciting and informative demonstrations with his avian costars. A professional public speaker, Mike entertains his audiences with personal anecdotes and motivational speeches that use falconry as a metaphor to encourage them to follow their dreams. Guests also get to learn about each feathered raptor while it surveys the crowd for wild Energizer bunnies, and Mike encourages audience interaction by inviting volunteers from the audience to hold the hawk and try in vain to teach it to bark like a dog.

Rob Snowhite is a professional fly-fishing consultant devoted to training and tutoring aspiring anglers. His multi-tiered background in consulting, education, fly-fishing, biological science, and writing The New Adventures of Old Christine fan-fiction gives him a trained vantage point from which to approach his craft. During your two-hour guided trip, you and a friend, loved one, or sentient pet cat get to explore the DC area's waterways while walking in, wading, or canoe floating over your choice of lake, river, pond, or stream. Rob will carefully explain both the mechanical and theoretical aspects of fly-fishing while emphasizing only the catch-and-release method of fishing, as well as sustainable ways of exploring the water. Learn the basics of casting on grass or on water, knot tying, rods, reels, flies, entomology, hydrology, and more. All equipment is provided for the trip, as well as drink and snack rewards for staying on top of your fish-based fly game (lunch is optional and an additional $10 per person).

CycleStudio's instructors incorporate yoga poses along with a low-impact cardio workout on CycleOps indoor bicycles that spin 50-pound free wheels according to Washingtonian Magazine. Ensuring a whole-body workout capable of delivering strength, cardiovascular health, and Tour de France eligibility, HardCore Cycling classes begin with a calorie-torching stint atop the exercise bikes before crunching abdominals into an undulating expanse of toned musculature. Cycle-yoga classes combine a pulse-elevating cycling workout with 30 minutes of dynamic-yoga practice, and purely yoga sessions use flowing asana transitions to lengthen limbs until they can bear-hug a king-size mattress.
