When you think about visiting D.C., you think about seeing the Washington Monument, Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, and The White House. But did you know that D.C. has a vibrant arts community?
According to Destination D.C., the metro area is a thriving cultural capital where each season approximately 80 professional theaters produce more than 350 productions that play to more than 2 million audience members. In fact, the nation’s capital has the second-highest per-capita number of theater productions annually (2nd to New York City). On any given night, curtains are rising on upwards of 200 performances at theaters in the District, Virginia and Maryland.
