Bring along your best buds to the nation’s capital.
Explore popular and vibrant neighborhoods, tour the National Mall and eat/play/party your way through the city. Once your trip is through, you’re sure to realize that there’s only one DC.
Start the day with breakfast at the Silver Diner in Navy Yard before you take a Big Bus tour of the National Mall. The company allows for a hop-on, hop-off experience, allowing you to explore multiple monuments, memorials and museums. Afterward, stop at the International Spy Museum to embark on your own Undercover Mission and discover the incredible work of intelligence agents and experts.
Stroll along The Wharf’s boardwalk and visit the Municipal Fish Market, the oldest continuously operating, open-air fish market in the U.S. For dinner, pick from a fabulous array of restaurants at The Wharf, many of which offer waterfront views. Cap off the night with a live show at The Anthem or a drink at 12 Stories.
Enjoy a bike ride or walk along DC’s Metropolitan Beer Trail. Stop at any of the 11 bars and pubs along the route or book yourself a guided tour of the murals and brews on the Trail. Then, it’s time to embrace nature at the U.S. National Arboretum, which features the historic former U.S. Capitol Columns, a Bonsai Garden and much more across its 446 acres.

Now, it’s time for some serious bonding. Bring your pals to Throw Social or Beat the Bomb, two places perfectly suited to group activities. Once a champion has been crowned, visit Atlas Brew Works for happy hour, then dig in for dinner at Ivy City Smokehouse, known for its DC-centric twist on seafood. If there’s still gas in the tank, get your groove on during an electronic/dance concert over at Echostage.
