The Kennedy Center offers free musical performances every night from 6-7pm that are open to the public. It was a bit crowded, but well worth the trip over. What a fantastic city to provide free access to such a fine cultural experience.

Very limited because everyone will be out on the mall. If you get a chance check with the hotel to see what activity is going on in town on the mall. Most likely there will be free concerts by the military bands
