If you are looking for an entertaining place to stop by that is easily metro accessible, the corner of 7th and H St. NW is the place to go. The Chinatown neighborhood is already lively with retail shops, plenty of restaurants, and even museums. This DC street corner is always buzzing with street performers!
Just the other day I was getting off of the metro and there was a group of performers with four random participants. (See picture above) They were doing acrobatics and providing a lot of entertainment for the large crowd of onlookers. It is a great way to be introduced to the fun energy of the district before continuing on to the museums and nightlife of this dynamic city!
