Do: Horseback Ride in Rock Creek Park A perfect spot to take in the scenery on horseback, the wooded Rock Creek Park has thirteen miles of dirt trails for horseback riding along with an Equitation Field. If you’re looking for lessons or guides, head to the nearby Rock Creek Horse Center.
Stay: Omni Shoreham Hotel For the most part, the Shoreham is a hulking, fairly bland-looking 834-room convention-focused business hotel. But there’s more to this historic hotel. Evening turndowns; a beautiful outdoor pool; a great gym; a quaint but still convenient location just north of Dupont Circle; a haunted room on the 8th floor — it’s an excellent choice for the price.
