  • DC2NY
    Leave it to a DC bus company to build its service upon democratic principles: BestBus lets its riders vote on issues such as whether or not to make rest stops or watch movies. This novel approach to customer service was developed by a senior management team with decades of experience in the hospitality industry. Their experience making people feel at home also shows in the modern fleet of buses, which are equipped with free WiFi and bottled water, well-kept bathrooms, and electrical outlets on every seat. Most of the roundtrip voyages take place between DC or Virginia and New York City, with convenient pickup locations at Dupont Circle, Union Station & Silver Spring in DC/MD, Time Square in New York, and three Virginia stops. Weekend trips often have express service with no additional pickups. For regular commuters, BestBus offers a membership program, which grants special pricing, rewards points redeemable for tickets, and the privilege of declaring yourself mayor of your seat.

  • Greater Reston Arts Center
    At Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE), art aficionados mingle in a community that fosters a love of visual arts with hands-on education, exhibitions, and special events. A yearlong family membership grants parents access to contemporary-art exhibitions with artist receptions, workshops, special events, and a 10% discount on a kids' single summer art class (20% when registering for multiple classes). Children smear glue, sprinkle glitter, and splatter paint from three brimming art buckets without tattooing your living-room sofa during Explore More, a self-guided exploration of the current exhibition with related art-making activities. Unleash your child's inner Picasso with priority admission to GRACE's summer art programs, which immerse children in puppetry, comic books, and self-portraits ideal for proudly mounting on refrigerators or above castle mantels.

  • Applegate Gallery and Custom Framing
    Experienced artist and framer Sara Minarik helps to conserve cherished photos and apprized accolades from the quality-diminishing effects of the world with custom frames cradling museum-quality materials. Memento memorializers can submit their souvenirs to Applegate's talented picture-preservers and rest assured that all pop-art posters, beloved sports memorabilia, and original recipes for raisins will be returned in a framed shield of see-through body armor that flatters as much as it protects. Though project rates vary as much as their framed-in contents, a complete 5"x7" frame with acid-free matting and UV-filtering glass usually starts at around $100. Patrons can customize keepsakes by choosing their favorite materials from a selection of more than 1,500 frames and more than 1,200 matting options.
