The people in the city of Washington DC are known to be serious and workaholics. However, the political capital of the country has its own charms after the sun sets. There are a lot of live performances out there just like the ones found in the Big Apple. However despite this, the city has no theater scene and Broadway which makes it mysterious than ever.
