Farmers Markets

Clubs & lounges
The night scene in this city does spread beyond Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, and Georgetown despite what some guides might have you believe. Here are some alternatives if you’re looking for a drink, couch, or dance floor.

Stores
DC has plenty of locally owned stores with friendly owners and unique selections. Chain stores aren’t the only option in the District.

Parks
