Favorite thing to do
Anyone visiting Washington between May and September should try to catch a DC United soccer game at RFK Stadium. DC United is the winningest franchise in Major League Soccer and has the best crowd in the league. web site, RFK Stadium, 2400 East Capitol Street SE, Washington, DC, 202-587-5000
