  • I love Wolf Trap!!! Family oriented park you can visit anytime. Keep an eye on their concert programs & take action quickly- assigned seat tickets sold out fast. Or you can save some $ if you don't mind bringing out your picnic gears & be there 1~2 hours prior to show time to reserve your place out in the lawn. Strongly recommended!
  • NOVA's perfect little music venue. With big headliners and fun shows. Get there early for everything. Went early to see Sting and had great lawn seats. Went on time to watch Harry Potter and only got lawn on the side and couldn't see the screen. Two very different experiences. Plan ahead and pad the departure time you tell your husband.
