A Guide to DC for the Outdoors or Athletics Enthusiast


 
Sports

Washington, DC, has a lot to offer tourists. With incredible museums and national monuments, there is so much to see and do in the nation's capital. But for those who love the outdoors or who always want to be physically active, standing in a museum to look at old documents may not be what they would call fun. These types of people may not feel like there are any attractions designed for their interests, and they may not know what to do in Washington, DC.

This guide is designed for outdoors and athletics enthusiasts visiting the capital, and it will give you some ideas of more physical activities that may interest you.

Montgomery County Parks

If you venture away from the hustle and bustle of DC, and journey to nearby Silver Springs, MD, you'll find more hiking and biking trails than any outdoors enthusiast could desire. Montgomery County Parks is a system of several different public parks, and they all include trails that are perfect for hiking, biking, or just taking a casual stroll through nature.

But these aren't just any regular trails that you could find anywhere else in the country. These trails are unique to the county; you can even take a guided tour commemorating the Underground Railroad, which was very prominent in this area. These guided tours take you on a hike through a wooded area, teaching you various techniques that escaped slaves would use to evade trackers, find food, and make their way to the North in search of freedom. It is an incredible experience that makes history fun and exciting while allowing you to be outdoors.

In addition to hiking trails, Montgomery County Parks also has public gardens you can visit and special classes, programs, and camps you can enroll in. These classes and programs accept participants of all ages, so your entire family can enjoy the nature that surrounds DC together.

Capital Bikeshare

This bike sharing program gives you access to thousands of bicycles, and provides you with a great way to tour Washington DC. Capital Bikeshare has over 350 bike stations throughout DC, Alexandria and Arlington, VA, and Montgomery County, MD. You can sign up for their services for a single day, a week, or however long you wish. During that time, you'll be able to take a bike from any station, and return it to a station near your destination.

If you love biking or just being outdoors, then this is a great way to get around and tour these cities. You'll see much more of the city than you would see from the back seat of a cab, and you'll be getting your workout to boot.

Golf Courses Galore

Are you an avid golfer? Then the DC area has a lot to offer you. There are dozens of golf courses in and around the nation's capital. You can visit one of these great courses as a way to relax after a long day of site seeing, or, if you're feeling ambitious, you can make it your goal to visit every single one of them. With top-rated golf courses like the Falls Road Golf Course, Hampshire Greens Golf Course, Laytonsville Golf Course, and Little Bennett Golf Course, your dance card will be full throughout your time in DC!

If you have your kids with you, they can get in on the fun too. Nearby Gaithersburg, MD, has a wonderful miniature golf course that is popular for visitors of all ages. Day or night, a round of miniature golf is always a great activity for the family.

With so many outdoorsy and athletic activities available to you, you should never have to wonder what to do in Washington, DC.
