If you’re reading a guidebook for Washington DC, bowling probably won’t be the first thing to jump out at you. But hidden behind all those monuments, museums, and other things to see in DC is perhaps the most American pastime of all. And America’s capital doesn’t do bowling quite like all the other cities do. While there are plenty of alleys for kids, some cater specifically to the city’s hardworking adults. Take Lucky Strike, for example. This Gallery Place bowling alley turns into a 21+ party after 8 p.m., making it one of the best things to do in DC if you’re on a first date or simply want to watch a bunch of politicians unwind.
