2 Hours of National Geographic-Inspired Fun in Downtown DC

Discover the area of DC known locally as “The Golden Triangle,” and explore the National Geographic Museum.

The Golden Triangle is the 43-block central business district that stretches from the front yard of the White House to Dupont Circle. It is home to prestigious businesses, superb restaurants, unique museums and art exhibitions, national parks such as Farragut Square, the city’s premier live comedy club, and classic hotels, such as The Hay-Adams and Mayflower. Stroll and shop along Connecticut Avenue, take a power walk on K Street, enjoy fine dining on 19th Street, and take in the nightlife along M Street. Visit goldentriangledc.com for a complete guide to area attractions.

For those arriving to town early on Friday, June 2, join Golden Triangle’s fun “Farragut Fridays” in the park at Farragut Square, located at Connecticut Avenue and K Street NW. At sunset, we’ll kick off our Golden Cinema summer series with a showing of the Academy Award-nominated Hidden Figures!
