Once upon a time, there was a college in Ellicott City there was a religious school. Now it lays in ruins and locals call it Hell House. Is it haunted? Some say so. You be the judge!
Betcha’ never knew that DC had wetlands. Kingman and Heritage Islands are in NE and SE DC in the Anacostia River. They are DC’s very own wildlife refuge where you can see turtles, egrets and of course, take an amazing hike right in the city!!!
Did you know that DC has its very own underground city? Enter the matrix just beneath the Library of Congress. Most people think that this set of tunnels merely connect one end of the library to the other. Wrong! It is an intricately developed tunnel system that connects the library to the Capitol Building and other super secret places. There are newstands, donut shops, a bordega and even a subway system that is totally separate from the metro!
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more mysterious, this place will show you that it can! Word on the street for decades was that there was a super secret subway under the Capitol building. It’s true! And Congressional personnel as well as Senators use it daily. How do you get it? Well, you may have to write to your Senator and ask.
If you’d like to take a peak into the secretive world of Scientology, their “Founding Church” in Washington, DC is open to the public for tours. Not recommended for those who are easily persuaded…unless you have a lot of disposable income and free time.
Book a tour, if you dare! See how the DoD does protects and serves our country, while getting a sneak peak inside the most secretive place in the United States.
Descend into the shadowy underground of the church and stumble upon hidden hallways, and secret passageways. Take a ride to the top of the steeple and you’ll find a secret place of hidden people!!!
Looking to escape from D.C.? Why not go underground, and I don’t mean hitting the subway. Dupont Underground regularly holds art exhibits under D.C. in tunnels that actually connect to the White House!
The only place in the DC-area where government workers are happy to share their collection of drug paraphernalia with the public. Come visit the DEA museum, with thousands of drug and drug law enforcement related items. Don’t get your hopes up about the gift shop or the museum’s “interactive stations” though – it’all on the up and up.
Visitors are welcomed daily at the metro-accessible Franciscan Monastery to tour DC’s catacombs and crypt. In addition to the catacombs – replicated after those in Rome – the grounds have many beautiful gardens to explore.
