Ford's Theatre is an easy walk from Metro Center.

Although we wanted to take Metro which is only two blocks away, they were doing track work and it would have taken us too long. There are numerous parking garages in the area. The lot next to the theater is the most expensive at $30, but just two blocks away, we paid $10.

The theater is right in the heart of the theater district. Between Warner and Verizon Center so there are lots of places to eat

Tons of eating places. We ate at Asia Nine which was around the corner. Very reasonable: appetizer [shared], wine, 2 entrees - including tip $55.00. Excellent food, excellent ambience & cloth covered tables.
