Glenstone

The creators of Glenstone held three elements above all else when forming this unique gallery: art, architecture, and landscape. The gallery is situated on 200 acres of old foxhunting grounds, and nature plays heavily on the gallery's building and gardens. The gallery houses several contemporary art collections, the main collection of which focuses on post World War II work. To visit the fascinating Glenstone, you will need to reserve a time to visit the gallery, which you can do online, or by calling the gallery. The establishment provides free tours through the gallery, as well as through the outdoor sculpture gardens.

Theodore Roosevelt Island and Memorial

This Potomac River island is an apt memorial to the conservation-minded Teddy Roosevelt, the nation's 26th president. The 88-acre wildlife refuge can be explored along winding footpaths. In a clearing at the island's center stands a 22-foot bronze statue of Roosevelt, accompanied by inscriptions of his eloquent thoughts on nature and conservation. Access the island from Virginia via George Washington Memorial Parkway. A pedestrian bridge connects the island to a parking lot on the Virginia shoreline.

Exorcist Steps

We all like watching hair-raising horror movies. But who would miss a chance to experience the place where the climax scene of the famed movie 'The Exorcist' was shot? Tourists flock here in Georgetown to see the Exorcist Stairs. Many other movies and television series have also been filmed here. The steep steps and the somewhat ancient and dark ruined structure adds to the effect.

Art Museum of the Americas

The Art Museum of the Americas works to showcase artists whose compelling works speak to political or social issues. This engaging museum was originally founded in 1917 as the Visual Arts Unit of the Pan American Union, but opened its doors as the Art Museum of the Americas in 1976. The museum boasts an impressive collection of important contemporary Latin American and Caribbean works, as well as hosting rotating exhibits that display the work of both emerging and established artists. The museum also runs educational programs and hosts events like free screenings of socially and politically-geared documentaries.

DEA Museum & Visitors Center

Learn about the history of the Drug Enforcement Administration at this unique museum. Besides learning about the DEA, you learn about drug use in the United States through the decades and how it's impacted life and culture. Items on display include a Hell's Angels motorcycle, technology used by the DEA in the past, medicine bottles form the early 20th Century, and much more.

The Velvet Lounge

A veritable storehouse of talent is what you will find at the Velvet. Located in the bustling U Street neighborhood of the city, this music club is a local hit. Opt from a passel of events from stand-up acts, live concerts, DJ nights or a musical extravaganza. With tasty libations and a relaxing ambiance, Velvet is your one stop for a creative dose.
