Things to Do in Washington in March

Visit the DEA museum

Visit the DEA museum
D.C. is home to several federal agencies, including the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). While you're in town, don't miss this oft-overlooked museum focusing on the DEA's work against drugs. You'll learn about how different drugs themselves are made, as well as how agents fight against drug dealers and drug abuse. The museum can come off as a little preachy or heavy-handed, but it's worth visiting for all the valuable information and interesting exhibits.

Attend a comedy show

Attend a comedy show
All of the people with very serious government jobs need to relax in their free time - as a result, D.C. has a large number of amazing comedy clubs where you can catch a show that will leave you in stitches. The most popular club is by far the D.C. Improv Comedy Club, with a number of stages featuring different comedians, but other options include The Big Hunt, who often has comedy shows in their basement, Bier Baron with their comedy burlesque show, or RFD for hot new talent at their open-mic nights. Enjoy a few drinks and laugh until your stomach hurts on a chilly March night.
