Diverse Arts & Entertainment District

DC’s premier arts and entertainment district is the historic Penn Quarter. Catch a home game at Capital One Arena, with the Washington Wizards (NBA), Washington Mystics (WNBA), or the Washington Capitals (NHL). Visit Ford’s theatre, where Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, or take in a play by the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company. Get a taste of the neighborhood favorites at Italian-inspired Graffiato or swing by Daikaya for Japanese ramen and izakaya. Whether you’re looking for sports, arts, or dining, Penn Quarter has something for you. While you’re here, head north two blocks to Chinatown, for the Instagram-worthy Friendship Archway. The Gallery Place-Chinatown Metro station is on the green, yellow, and red lines, so you’ll never be far from anywhere in DC.
