The United States capital is a place with many hidden attractions and you might not be able to explore all these attractions on Washington DC bus tours. So get on foot, and explore the below attractions as part of you DC walking tour instead.
The Technicolor Church
The Technicolor Church can be a good attraction to the art enthusiasts out there. This church, decorated by cool murals, is located at 700 Delaware Ave SW and was transformed by the Atlanta based artist named Alex “Hense” Brewer. The church was painted in an attempt to help in the transformation of the neighborhood into an arts district. Note that the church does not function as a place of worship now.
Hidden Forest with a Blair Witch Vibe
There is a glass forest in DC adorned with bicycle parts, twig tangles, decorative mirrors, and many other things. You will know that the forest is both creepy and cool. You can walk to the place after parking at the Palisades Park and then walk to the back of the place. The path to the place is on the right and you will find the place easily. The place was vandalized easily but it is back now.
There is a Lover’s Lane pool that is worth exploring. Do not get carried away by the name of the pond, as it has nothing to do with lovers. You can read a board in the Dumbarton Oaks Gardens, telling that the pond makes music. You can experience the music that is produced by different bamboo percussion instruments, emanating from different snorkel like speakers. The music bounces off the amphitheater seating, offering a real secret experience to the visitors.
The DEA Museum
Are you interested in visiting a museum that is dedicated to drugs, drug abuse, and things that are related to drug law enforcement? The Drug Enforcement Agency Museum was renovated recently and has been updated to welcome the guests. In the museum, you can learn about patent medicines, opium dens, and explore the exhibitions on the history of jazz and heroin, the Colombian cartels and Pablo Escobar, DC head shops, narco terrorism after 9-11, and so on.
