Interested in anything aviation and/or space related? This museum will have you covered from models of the very first aircraft to models of satellites and rovers. Very cool and super informative. A massive Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater is also within this museum. It’s one of the largest IMAX screens in DC. You can buy tics online or in person when available. Major movie releases are usually shown here, but not all so definitely research beforehand.

I occasionally go here at night, sit on the steps, and just observe the reflection pool along with the Washington Monument in the night sky. I honestly think the experience is better at night. There’s usually college aged adults and small groups of tourists around even at 1am.

I claim this as the best Caribbean food in the DMV and it’s only a short 5 min drive away. It’s pickup only. Try to get food here before 5pm because some dishes start becoming unavailable in the later hours. Food is cooked per order so there’s usually a 15 min or so wait.
