The best things in life are free & sometimes what you can find in DC for that price doesn’t suck either. This Memorial Day weekend, I visited Washington DC for the first time, & made a point of visiting The Kennedy Center. Visit their web...More

The décor of the Kennedy Center is reminiscent of a 19th Century New Orleans Bordello, consisting of garish reds and an overabundance of glitter. The theater programs consist largely of low budget non-Equity versions of mega-hits such as "Cats," targeted to those who rarely have...More

There is something extra-special about seeing a performance at such a famous and renowned theater. The Kennedy Center brings out the best in its patrons - forget casual jeans and flip-flops! Bring your A-game and feel a little upper-crust for a few hours. Rooftop restaurant...More

no other city in the world offers you free live entertainment every night of the year. Tonight's treat was Harlem and DC jazz. Great venue, amazing acoustics and friendly and efficient bar staff and ushers. Highly recommend.

As a guest to 1st Tier side seating, one can see the enormous seating capacity. VIP lounge was less than expected. This famous concert facility was built to efficiently move a large number of people and did not have long standing lines. Enjoyed it.

Very limited because everyone will be out on the mall. If you get a chance check with the hotel to see what activity is going on in town on the mall. Most likely there will be free concerts by the military bands
