Built in the late 1800's, Glen Echo Park used to be an amusement park, and since its closure in the 1960's, it has undergone restorations and one of the most popular sites is the carousel, as it's the only functioning ride now. Still a pretty park and there's always some kind of event going on…

Not a symphony hall, but a huge traditional dance hall with live music - big band, salsa, swing - all weekend long.
