1. Opera in the Outfield

  • Where/When: The show starts at 7 p.m. Saturday at Nationals Park, 1500 South Capitol St. SE, Washington.
  • Why Go: You'd have to get reasonably dressed up to go to the Kennedy Center, but the opera is casual at Nationals Park!

  • Pricing: Free!

"Tell your family's story against a backdrop of fall foliage at the photo fundraiser for Discovery Woods Learning Community's  Meadow School. This is a magical spot for family photos and it features open meadows, a shade garden, a mud pit, a sandbox, a lush vegetable garden, a rope swing."
