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
The weather was rainy. I wore casual pants and a top.
Or, add your own... Recommend Bistro D'Oc across the street. It has a pre-theater menu for $25.
Bistro d'oc, across the street. Very good food reasonably priced.
Archives Metro is only a few blocks away.
Brunch at Bistro d'Oc quite nice and very reasonably priced. Parking next to theater is $15 on a Sunday but building a block away is $10 - enter on 11th bet. E & F.
The Spy Museum is close by. We did both and had a perfect day.
Get there early as your ticket allows you to visit the museum downstairs....
Give yourself time to visit the museum downstairs.
We had a lovely dinner at Asia Nine, which is just around the corner from the theater.
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.
There is street parking and parking lots. We got there early and there were spots available.
The weather was OK, rainy then fine. I wore black jeans, black turtle neck under a white pullover shrug. .
Boston across the street. Great.
We dined at Bistro D`Oc across the street. Yummy French cuisine and fast service.
Parking is always an adventure downtown. We parked very easily in the adjacent parking garage, but had a little trouble getting into it to leave...beautiful evening, folks on street getting parking tickets... all's well that ends well.
Driving Miss Daisy
On weekends it costs $15 to park in the garage adjacent to the Theater
We enjoyed a visit to the portrait gallery and a great lunch at the Kogod atrium there
