  • Adventures for Creative Tourists
    Adventures for Creative Tourists helps DC visitors explore the city's more artistic side. Though, if you do want to see the top museums, custom tours can help you explore the Smithsonian National Gallery of Art, Portrait Museum, the Anderson House Museum, and the Kreeger Museum. Custom Tours include the option to upgrade to transportation and an option to stop for meals so that you don't feel tempted to nibble on a still-life bowl of fruit.

  • SideTour - Leisure
    Sound Excursions describes their carefully curated group experiences as "field trips for adults." It's easy to see why: every outing takes groups to a new realm of Washington, whether it's the frothy shores of Puget Sound, inland forests and mountains, or tables at Seattle's thriving restaurants. The events held at these diverse locations range from culinary workshops on topics such as sushi-making and moonshine-tasting, to adventurous excursions with whitewater rafting or kayaking, to laid-back themed party cruises. For many outings, luxury transportation is provided.

  • Great Shoals Winery
    All crafted from local ingredients sourced from a handful of nearby farms, the ciders and wines at Great Shoals Winery are firmly rooted in the region. And folks have taken notice. Their collection has earned a number of ribbons, which have accumulated since the very first year the hard cider went into production. The more than 20 wines made there appear in a range of styles, including dry and sweet sippers made from apples, pears, and cherries. At the tasting room, visitors can sip samples of many of these, as well as purchase bottles and gifts, or enjoy the frequent events that are hosted on-site.

  • Terasol
    Is Terasol an art gallery, a coffee shop or a French bistro? Yes to all, actually. This Chevy Chase spot serves three square meals a day from its charming café space, where warm lighting and a plate-glass window light up the ample woodwork inside. Even more color comes from the large amount of artisan jewelry, pottery and crafts that hang on the walls or sit inside long, open shelves. As much an artistic shop for locally-made goods as it is a restaurant, Terasol supports DC’s creative side with occasional showings and constant displays of beautiful wares. Of course, they also support the old French countryside, with a rustic menu that ticks off great dishes like a checklist: French onion soup, beef bourguignon, mussels and frites. A warming quiche is available , and the croque monsieur will satisfy the largest of appetites.

  • College Park Aviation Museum
    Satisfy sky-centric curiosity with the College Park Aviation Museum's 27,000 square feet of cloud-plowing attractions, set on the historic grounds of the world's oldest continuously operating airport. This Smithsonian-affiliated museum's pride is a restoration shop, which makes once-grand beauties look as flight-ready as a seagull strapped to a jet pack. Ten vintage and reproduced aircraft are arrayed in the main gallery, including a reproduction of the Wright Model B from 1910 and a 1941 Boeing Stearman. Exhibits chart the nonvehicular history of flight, such as the Fly Now! showcase of international aviation posters dating back to 1860. Petite pilots may explore kid-friendly displays, sitting in the cockpit of the Imagination Plane, a 1939 blue Taylorcraft, or go to the hands-on room to dress in flight-ready uniform.
