  • Such a beautiful place. The venue is unlike any other that I have ever been to. There is basically two different seating areas. You can have an actual seat reserved down front by the stage or you can go for the very reasonably priced lawn tickets. Usually $25-$35 a pop. Best part of the lawn is it is all BYOB! Pack a cooler (check size limits) full of sodas or any of your favorite adult beverages, and snacks. If you are on the lawn though get there early. They open the doors early and do the lawn rush. First person to thrown down a blanket claims that area. They do have parking but it can be a bit limited and you spend a fair amount of time looking for a spot. They do have amazingly helpful staff that directs traffic to help speed things up.
  • Wolf Trap is a great location for concerts and events. It's conveniently located right off of VA 267 (Dulles Toll Road). You can get here from anywhere in the DC metro area. I always have a good time here. I attended a gala here and everything went splendidly.
