The National Arboretum is not all that easy to get to. It's way out on New York Avenue. You need a car to get there. However, it's worth the trip. The real jewel here is the bonsai tree collection. It's magnificent. One negative: they (the federal government, of course) prohibit ball playing, frisbee throwing, basically anything fun, on the vast grassy areas at the Arboretum. I really don't understand why this should be the case. Allowing people to actually have fun at the Arboretum might even enhance utilization of this nice, wide-open space.
