  • City Sports Washington
    It all started with a deflated basketball. Though longtime friends Mike Kennedy and Eric Martin scoured downtown Boston for an inflating needle to fill it, no shops in the area carried one. They were frustrated—and they realized that other Bostonians looking for athletic gear were likely frustrated too. So in 1983, they opened City Sports, a shop stocked with all the footwear, athletic apparel, and sports equipment that the metropolis had been missing. Nearly three decades later, Mike and Eric's neighborhood business has expanded to 20 shops across the East Coast. In addition to stocking popular brands such as Vibram, The North Face, and Patagonia, the store engineers its own CS by City Sports line. Shoppers include yogis, cyclists, and tennis players—anyone seeking to outfit active lifestyles, whether they're playing a team sport or braving the hike up the world's largest gumdrop. In addition to footwear and apparel, the staff stocks fitness equipment such as kettlebells, lifting gloves, and dumbbells.

  • Potomac Paddle Sports
    At Potomac Paddlesports, the first professional kayak school to be endorsed by the American Canoe Association, the team of American Canoe Association– and British Canoe Union–certified instructors patiently lead students through a methodical progression of flat-water paddling skills. The classes cover a variety of watersports, including whitewater rafting, river and sea kayaking, and standup paddling. The small-group classes are designed to keep students engaged, and longer trips down the Potomac challenge their skills with powerful rapids surrounded by lush scenery, interspersed with rare glimpses of bears putting on their bear suits. Outside of class, students can bond with fellow paddlers during weekly sushi meals and occasional movie nights. Further demonstrating their dedication to bodies of water, Potomac Paddlesports works to preserve the nation’s rivers, estuaries, and oceans, sharing this passion with its members through advocacy and donations to conservation programs.

  • Round Trip Sports
    As a baseball complex devoted entirely to helping young ballplayers achieve their potential, Round Trip Sports' 7,500 square feet of turfed surface is a breeding ground for the pro sluggers and fielders of tomorrow. Batters perfect their swings in one of three 72-foot hitting tunnels equipped with pitching machines, and pitchers take the mound in one of three 72-foot pitching lanes to practice their fastballs and curveballs. The facility also features fast and slow pitching machines for softball players, and a lobby equipped with TV and WiFi. But all the equipment would be moot without proper guidance, which is why all of Round Trip Sports' instructors are former college players and major leaguers. They lead clinics and camps for kids of all ages, with specified sessions focusing on topics such as speed and agility and strength and coordination. And then there are the camps and the clinics, where experienced instructors and veteran ballplayers impart the fundamentals necessary to the game: batting, pitching, fielding, and the secret hand signal for "hot dog, hold the mustard."

  • Washington Post
    When the first issue of The Washington Post was published on December 6, 1877, it was only four pages long and cost just three cents. For a couple of pennies, readers gained access to some of the world?s most brilliant minds, including Joseph Pulitzer and Teddy Roosevelt, who were among its earliest contributors. In the century that followed, The Post became known not just for the headlines it reported, but the ones it inspired. Over the years, the paper?s world-class investigators broke the story of Watergate and helped force the declassification of the Pentagon Papers. Today, the Post has maintained nearly unrivaled relevance by expanding into digital content, winning a 2014 Pulitzer Prize. Its website and apps allow the paper to publish up-to-the-minute developments on national and world news, but, like its print edition, also includes op-ed articles and coverage of sports and pop culture. On the apps, however, readers can access additional in-depth coverage on what didn't make it to print in the hard copy edition, as well as exclusive stories by Post writers and contributors. The smartphone and tablet apps also include special features such as 40+ comic strips, easy access to The Forum, The Post's real-time Twitter tool, as well as live discussions and the ability to quickly share stories via social media feeds.
