  • 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.

  • Calleva
    Established: 1994 Reservations/Appointments: Required Staff Size: 2?4 people Average Duration of Services: 3?4 hours Pro Tip: Come ready for adventure and fun. Make sure you bring clothes that you don't mind getting wet. Handicap Accessible: Yes Parking: Parking lot Most Popular Attraction/Offering: River Tours Recommended Age Group: All Ages Calleva With a name that means "where the paths cross," it's no surprise that Calleva is dedicated to bringing people of all ages and from all walks of life together to appreciate the outdoors. The certified MAEOE environmental center helps its guests dive into the heart of the wilderness right outside D.C. and raise awareness about its delicate ecosystems. In doing so, it encourages others to cooperate and take risks while stepping out of their comfort zones, like baby birds leaving the nest to start their own nest-building business. To facilitate these efforts, a team of ACA-certified guides helms seasonal outdoor-adventure and educational programs. In warm weather, activities might include kayaking and canoeing down winding stretches of the Potomac River or paddling to a private island filled with ropes-challenge courses and other obstacles. Fishing and ecological-study programs present even more varied ways to explore the water. Other adventures include the year-round, such as backpacking; the cold weather, such as caving; and the whimsical, such as the annual haunted forest where ghosts and ghouls mingle under a zip-line course.

  • Coco cabana
    A well-known Italian restaurant in Hyattsville, Coco cabana is the ideal spot for a delightful menu. The laid-back atmosphere and great menu options allow customers to focus on what matters: the fantastic food. If you're wanting to plan ahead, most folks will be quick to point out that Saturdays are often the best night of the week to stop by. There's no particular required attire, so feel free to dress comfortably. Also, it's often reported that the background noise can get a little loud here. For those watching what they eat, the menu does feature vegetarian items and it's a good option for large groups, dancing, and families with children. If you need food provided for a local event, take advantage of its catering options. Or, if you're looking for the perfect spot to unwind after work, it's got a phenomenal happy hour and a pretty broad selection behind the bar. To sum everything up, you won't walk away from Coco cabana disappointed. Don't worry about trying to find a spot on the street, as visitors to the restaurant do have access to a private parking lot nearby. Would you rather ride there? Bike parking is also provided.

  • C and O Canal Towpath
    While the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal runs along much of the Potomac River, from the District of Columbia out to Cumberland, Maryland (a distance of more than 180 miles), Washingtonians are most familiar with the portion between Georgetown and the Maryland border. This section of the C&O Canal, which opened around 1830, is quite quaint, meandering between 19th-century townhouses and updated office buildings. As you head out of Georgetown, the towpath runs parallel to the C&O Canal, making it perfect for hikers, bikers and early-morning runners. While the mule-drawn canal boat ride is no longer available in Georgetown, you can ride it in Great Falls between April and October, with National Park rangers dressed in period clothing serving as tour guides, providing perspective on life along the canal.

  • Ballpark Boathouse
    Mr. Smith would have gotten around Washington a lot faster if he had just visited Ballpark Boathouse. The boathouse sits in the shadow of Nationals Park, near the banks of the Anacostia River. The vessels pass by scenic views of the nation's capital, and unlike a tour bus, even allow dogs (Ballpark Boathouse gladly supplies pet-sized life vests). Before visitors depart on their aquatic adventures, Ballpark Boathouse's staff can give them a beginners' kayaking lesson or visitors can take a walk to the nearby Yard's Park or Diamond Teague Park.

  • Key Bridge Boathouse
    From weather-beaten docks that support rows of kayaks in a rainbow of colors, paddlers disembark onto the Potomac, threading through the bridge?s arches and taking in the lush riverside scenery. Nestled along three Potomac River locations, Boating in DC's team of water conquerors is on hand to instruct new kayakers and paddleboarders in taming the river?s gentle waves. Upon returning to shore, guests are invited to make use of the dock?s picnic tables to eat lunch and dry their hair.
