Washington DC Monuments by Moonlight Tour by Trolley

1,623 reviews
Washington DC looks spectacular when lit up at night, so make the most of your time in the city by going on an evening tour on an open-air trolley. Going on an organized tour saves time working out local public transport, and means you can learn along the way through guide commentary. Tick off lots of top landmarks such as the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Washington Memorial, and more.

The Lisner Auditorium at GWU was a fantastic location to host a graduation. The seats were comfortable, the lighting was nice, and it had the modern amenities for things such as PowerPoint presentations. The speaker system was more than adequate, as well.

The four of us came to see Rossini's Zelmira (first US performance since 1837). The opera is sensational! But the auditorium, while satisfactory acoustically, is designed for agile midgets. The seats have less room than economy on Delta, and the line for the Men's room (forget the women's room) snakes for miles.

We went to Lisner for a concert with Bela Fleck and three other SUPER musicians. The music was stellar and was served with excellent acoustics and lighting. But the seats have less leg room than the worst economy class airline seats you've ever been in. Even a 5'5" person (my wife) has to sit with legs to the side so as not to have knees crushed. It's really terrible design, but somehow they consistently attract top talent, and so the audiences will always come. That includes us.

In many respects, GWU is DC's university. It has lots of venues open to the public and owns most of the land in the Foggy Bottom area. Even the World Banks rests on land owned by GWU. One of its under appreciated venues is the Lister Auditorium. You can see everything from a political debate to opera or country and western music here.

If you have an opportunity to go to an event at the Lisner Auditorium, I would take it. You will have college students and professors in the audience. It's not too big, and restrooms are on site. We were fortunate to be sitting near the front of a very full event, so I am not sure how the higher seating works. We went to hear Jose Andres speak, and what an amazing experience it was. Biggest piece of advice is to bring a sweater/jacket or blazer. It was absolutely freezing inside on an 80-degree day. Even my teenager had on a sweater.
