Walkers and bikers can enjoy the picnic area (available on a first-come basis). Tickets are $15 per car (purchase here) or free for walk-ups and bikers.

Dine at Le Diplomate and you may think you’ve stumbled upon a Parisian café in Saint-Germain-des-Prés – the atmosphere is ritzy and sophisticated, perfect for a celebratory evening. The menu includes traditional Americana dishes and French classics, but you can’t go wrong with their “Burger Américain” (consistently in the running for best burger in DC).

Sometimes you just need a giant pretzel with beer cheese… for those times, head to Rebellion, a neighborhood bar not far from downtown AdMo. Reminiscent of How I Met Your Mother’s “MacLaren’s” or “Cheers,” Rebellion is an ideal place to catch a Caps game (or watch any DC Sports team) and enjoy a variety of local beers sourced from the DMV region.

Tucked away off of U Street, Goodwood’s quiet, refined atmosphere is ideal for a lazy Saturday spent shopping for antiques, artwork, glassware, and mid-century furniture. Set-up like a traditional general store, Goodwood also offers a beautiful womenswear selection that includes unique and sophisticated pieces like leather shoes, one-of-a-kind broaches, hats, and scarves.

Hunting for that extra special “statement piece” for your new apartment? Check out Miss Pixie’s – a haven for “pickers” looking for antique furniture, glassware, and artwork with character. Unlike garage sales, the price is the price, so don’t expect to haggle your way to a bottom dollar deal. But DO expect to walk away with a miniature Tiffany’s style desk lamp and an antique mahogany side-table that you just couldn’t resist. If you can’t carry it home, don’t fret – Miss Pixie’s also has an excellent in-house delivery service.
