China Town is a great place to go for a night out if your looking for some culture and good food. There are all kinds of restaurants to chose from, even if you aren’t feeling Chinese food. After a good meal, head over to Gallery Place to do a little shopping, some bowling or catch a movie. If you’re just looking to kill a little time there’s lots of architecture to look at just walking around on H Street. It’s also super convenient to get here because it has its own stop on the Red Line, and is just a 10 minute walk from the National Mall.
