The National Arboretum Tram Tour

National Arboretum

Workplace team-building: This is what led me to the tram tour at the National Arboretum. It's one way to get out to some nature in DC without a lot of walking or sun. The trams run on weekends (and weekdays by appointment only) and rides cost $4.

There's a pre-recorded tour played during this slow, thirty-five minute ride. Although it contains interesting factoids here and there, you can mostly tune it out and enjoy the view.

The Arboretum is one of DC's large green spaces that's completely free to visit. It has some indoor exhibits and plenty of light hiking, as well as some more challenging biking opportunities.

Getting to the Arboretum can be challenging without a car, which helps explain why this great site is rarely crowded. Metrobus service to the Arboretum is available on weekends from Union Station and also from the Stadium Armory Station all week.
