Many travelers highly recommend a visit to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, built and named for America's beloved Camelot president. Visit the website for more information show times and ticket prices; the Kennedy Center houses the National Symphony Orchestra, the Washington Ballet and the Washington National Opera, as well as a number of other theater and musical performances throughout the year. Although ticket prices run a bit high, you can take in a performance for free on the Millennium Stage.
Located along the Potomac River's bank and on the dividing line of Washington, D.C. and Virginia, you can get to the Kennedy Center via a free shuttle bus that runs from the Foggy Bottom/GWU metro station.
