Travelers talk about
Not just a park in the city, but a kind of leisurely museum, with a scattering of Civil War forts, a cemetery and a 19th-century mill within its bounds.

This is a beautiful natural area that runs though DC. There are winding roads, picnic areas, playing fields, walking trails, horse trails (and a horse center where you can rent a mount). I’ve always loved the arches of the old stone bridges above you as...More

Just a short walk from the busy Adams Morgan neighborhood stands this gem in which you can take very long walks or bike rides immersed in nature. We did a 2 hour walk with friends through hiking terrain, contemplating the different kind of wild flowers...More

Yes, it's the big windy green park of walking trails that snakes and slithers its way north south through the northwest section of the city. So in the freezing polar vortex, I didn't get out of the car to Buc the fierce winds and ice...More

Rock Creek Park extends over a huge area in and beyond DC. Any entry point will bring you to a spot that you can't believe is in the midst of a major metro area. It's not possible to recommend specific areas, there are so many...More
