View from The Kennedy Center rooftop terrace
The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is the busiest arts center in the United States. When you walk inside, the grandness and history of The Center hits you. The Center hosts concerts, dance performances, plays, festivals and other events. Yet, the best part of The Kennedy Center is free, the rooftop terrace.
The terrace wraps around the entire building, providing incredible views of Washington, DC. To the southeast is the Washington Monument and the Jefferson Memorial. To the north, you get a view of the Watergate Complex, Washington Harbor and Georgetown. Stretching across the Potomac River is the Francis Scott Key Bridge and the skyline of Rosslyn, Virginia.
Take a look at the Rooftop Terrace
Recently, I visited The Kennedy Center to see a performance of the New York City Ballet. Afterwards, I headed up to the Rooftop Terrace with my camera to capture some of the magnificent view.
