LIVING IN THE DC METRO AREA
Discover moving shows all year long at over a dozen performing arts venues in and around DC. Follow the Kennedy Center, Arena Stage, the National Theater, and Signature Theater to catch the latest shows.
Black musicians from Washington, DC invented go-go and played a critical role in developing the jazz scene. You can catch go-go in the Shaw neighborhood. The U Street Corridor remains a popular destination for music as well. If you like classical, the National Symphony plays at the Kennedy Center. Assorted concerts are regularly held at other venues as well, including The Anthem on the Wharf in DC.
From professional to college teams and recreational leagues to pick-up games, DC is home to a robust community of sports enthusiasts.
