Looking for some cool things to do in DC while high? We’ve compiled a list of some ordinary, and some not-so-ordinary attractions to visit, all while being stoned, of course.
- United States Botanic Garden
Located across Independence Avenue from the Conservatory, the United States Botanic Garden is the perfect place to walk around stoned in DC. There is so much eye candy here, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a mystical wonder-realm, right in the heart of our nation’s capital.
- Washington National Cathedral
It is the sixth-largest church in the world, and there are plenty of interesting, even weirdly subversive sights on the grounds. There is a sculpture of Darth Vadar holding a lightsaber inside the cathedral, and the “Space Window” contains a piece of the moon. Enough said.
- Ford’s Theatre
Take a tour of this beautiful theatre-in-the-round…high. You’ll feel like you’ve taken a trip back to the 1860s while tripping in this velvet laden house of history. History buffs will be excited to know that there’s even a play reenactment of the Lincoln assassination right there where he was actually assassinated.
- The National Mall
The National Mall is the epicenter of Washington DC tourism, located right beside Capitol Hill. Not only is it best to come at night for beating the crowds, but the lighting is phenomenal. You haven’t seen the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial or the White House until you’ve seen them in all of their dramatically-lit glory, at night, stoned.
Easily one of the craziest art gallery experiences around. This is the home of art, science, and technology in DC. After and edible, these digital and innovative art installations, with their dizzying array of shapes and colors, will send you into another dimension. The gallery also offers “augmented-reality drinks,” don’t ask what they are, just try one and see.
- Meridian Park Drum Circle
There is a 40-year tradition of a drum circle in Meridian Hill/ Malcolm X Park every Sunday at 3 PM. Smoke a doob and groove to the groove—who doesn’t love a good drum circle?
- Renwick Gallery
Located right by the White House, this is a great spot to visit before your night-trip through the National Mall. The Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian American Art Museum houses some of the strangest, coolest art and is a great place to visit while in DC, high or not—and it’s free!
- Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens
“Where water and wind dance.” There are plenty of brightly colored and beautiful lotuses and lily pads at this trippy aquatic garden.
- Plane-Spotting at Gravelly Point Park
Get really high and layout in the sun in Gravely Point Park watching the low-flying commercial jets in the final stages of their descent before landing at a nearby runway. It’s just like that one scene in Wayne’s World.
- National Museum of Health and Medicine
This is another free museum experience where some of the all-time weirdest stuff is on view, including a massive hairball that was dislodged from a girl’s stomach, preserved Siamese twins conjoined at the chest, and all sorts of other strange, disgusting and mind-blowing medical exhibits.
