Do as the locals do - take a friend and bike, hike, jog or walk through Rock Creek Park.

Beach Drive closes to cars on the weekend and is just swarming with Washingtonians working of the stress from the previous week.

The park is accessible from the Woodley Park- Zoo Metro stop (the Zoo is in Rock Creek Park), Cleveland Park Metro, or by car. Grab any map, Rock Creek park is the huge green stripe that goes from north to south north west of the mall.

Bikes can be rented at Thompson's Boat Center, 2900 Virginia Ave. at Rock Creek Parkway NW (Metro: Foggy Bottom, with a 10-min. walk)
