    For more than 12 years, Metro Sports has given amateur and competitive players alike the chance to quench their thirst for the game with other coed teammates. Presided over by expert officials, teams play near the National Mall every spring, summer, and fall, making sure to avoid waking the kraken that lives in the Reflecting Pool. While softball is an available adult coed league, Metro Sports offers more sports as well. Refereed soccer leagues face off during battles of thrilling breakaways and impassioned goaltending year-round, moving to an indoor turf field every winter. Volleyball seasons likewise divide between indoor and outdoor courts. Each Metro-accessible game takes place at various locations in Northwest DC.

  • Gt Aviation
    The FAA-certified flight instructors at GT Aviation, LLC?launch novice pilots safely skyward during each lesson. Students begin in the brick-and-mortar flight school, where teachers versed in the FAA curriculum impart basic knowledge of plane instruments and functions. Pupils then hop into the cockpit of an aircraft for an hour of in-flight training, taking the controls, revving the engine, and singing "Danger Zone" as they ascend into the atmosphere. Upon cresting the clouds, high fliers swoop over the Potomac River while honing navigation skills under the instructor's watchful eye. The lesson whets appetites for adventure in the wild blue yonder, and allows prospective pilots to test their mettle and develop witty in-flight banter before beginning the journey toward complete FAA certification.

  • SJ Koch Electric Boats
    S.J. Koch Duffy's electric boats are eco-conscious, as they don't burn any fuel. Emitting zero emissions, the 22- and 18-foot rental boats provide breathtaking views upon departure from any of the company's two regional watery locales. Based on the harbor of choice, renters can take the canopied vessels floating by Annapolis's US Naval Academy, along the waterfront restaurants of Baltimore's Inner Harbor. On board, a built-in stereo system emits an energetic score to each renter's adventure. Duffy's website claims the boats are as easy to drive as a golf cart, but also offers training for new drivers. Self-propelled adventures are also popular, as the company also rents paddleboats and kayaks.

  • Rosecroft Raceway
    In 1949, William E. Miller—known as W.E. to his friends—opened Rosecroft Raceway, transforming a 120-acre farm into a showcase for the exciting standardbred racing that had begun to take the nation by storm. After briefly closing in 2008, the track soon reopened, hoping to reclaim W.E.’s legacy with fast-paced action seven nights a week. Every day, simulcasts convey harness- and quarter-horse races from across the country as visitors place bets on which steeds will attempt to chew their jockeys’ hats. On Tuesdays and Saturdays, hooves pound the dirt during live contests as chefs prepare everything from mozzarella sticks to succulent spare ribs in the Terrace Dining Room.
