"Three miles northwest of central Washington D.C."

The National Zoo is located three miles northwest of central Washington D.C., accessible by the Metro at the Woodley Park station or a short walk from the Cleveland Park station. Admission is free, and the grounds are open from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. during the summer, 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. during the winter, every day except for Christmas. Parking is available at the zoo, but it fills up quickly during spring break and summer, so taking the Metro is encouraged. Near the zoo, you can visit different areas of Rock Creek Park, full of forest-like areas, wild animals, and fresh air. You may also desire to attend an event at the McLean Gardens Ballroom, which hosts special events in a place historically known to presidents and socialites as the only place to be. The Friendship Recreation Center, otherwise known as Turtle Park, is a great place to go as well, offering play areas and sport courts and fields not far away. In central D.C. are the White House, U.S. Capitol, Supreme Court, and many more government buildings, some of which you can tour. And there are hundreds of monuments and memorials located around D.C. dedicated to presidents, famous persons, veterans, and more that you can view for the most part at any time. To access these attractions, you can use the WMATA Metro and bus lines, or there is limited parking available on some streets. More from this guide...
