    Pool side exercise

    by mht_in_la Written Jul 16, 2004

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lots of people walk from WWII Memorial at the east end of the Reflecting Pool to Lincoln Memorial at the west end, or the other way. I did too. It's a pleasant walk along the pool. But the water of the pool was too green for tourists to put their feet into.

    Paddling hard on Tidal Basin

    by mht_in_la Written Jul 14, 2004

    The best workout in Washington DC is walking in the National Mall. If you are tired of walking, visit Tidal Basin and try paddling. The photo was taken from Jefferson Memorial looking towards Washington Monument. There's no shade once you paddle out on the water.

    Pro Basketball-women -- Washington Mystics

    by soccergrrl Written Jun 30, 2004

    Washington DC's women's professional basketball team, the Washington Mystics, play in the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA). Like the men's team, they play their home games at the MCI Center in downtown DC. The season runs from May through September. I have to admit, I have never attended a Mystics game . . . Visit www.wnba.com/mystics/ for information.

    Professional Basketball-men -- Washington Wizards

    by soccergrrl Written Jun 30, 2004

    Washington DC's men's professional basketball team, the Washington Wizards, play in the National Basketball Association (NBA) at the MCI Center in downtown DC. The season runs from October through June. Like I said about hockey, I've been to a few games but don't know much else about the league. I'm more of a college basketball fan -- and the Georgetown University Hoyas (who play in the NCAA's Big East Conference) also play their home games at the MCI Center. For Wizards information, visit www.nba.com/wizards/.

    Professional Hockey -- Washington Capitals

    by soccergrrl Written Jun 30, 2004

    Washington DC's professional hockey team, the Washington Capitals, play in the National Hockey League (NHL). Their home ice is the MCI Center in downtown DC, near Chinatown. The season runs from October through April. While I have been to a few games and enjoyed them, I don't know much else about hockey or the league (sorry). For details, visit www.washingtoncapitals.com.

    Equipment: Be aware that all bags -- and persons -- are subject to search. While at the game, practice good hockey fan etiquette and wait for a stoppage in play before leaving from or returning to your seat. (OK, so I know *one* thing about hockey . . .)

    short day hike

    by Majaran Written Nov 6, 2003

    If you get tired of doing city stff you can spend a half day hiking the billy goat trail. The trail is best accessed from Great Falls park on the Maryland side and it winds its self down to Georgetown in the city. So... you could also start at Georgetown and go North on it.

    Washington Nationals

    by globetrotter_2006 Updated May 15, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Washington Nationals are DC's baseball team. The team is fairly new as they just moved to DC, but we used the Washington Senetors before the team was sent to Canada. They play at RFK stadium.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Since Washington DC has lots of monuments made of sleek / smooth surfaces it is a paradise to Roller Bladers & Skateboarders. Just don't get caught by the police.
