Eat Breakfast with the Cheetahs
The National Zoo in Washington’s stunning Rock Creek National Park is unique in a number of ways. It’s free (only a parking charge), it’s part of the Smithsonian Institution, the national museum and research complex, and it opens at 6am, before the exhibits are officially on display, allowing an unparalleled opportunity to see the animals led to their areas (including the six resident orangutans who walk hand in hand). Highlights include an outdoor flight area where you can have your pocket picked by a curious cormorant and a solar-powered Carousel opposite the Prairie Dog playground will keep the little ones entertained. Top tired-feet tip: leave the car and take the Metro to Cleveland Park from where you walk downhill to the zoo. On leaving walk downhill again to the Woodley Park stop!
