When was the last time you sat under the stars, eating tapas, and enjoying a live performance? One of my favorite summer spots is the Filene Center at Wolf Trap. Wolf Trap is a performing arts center located less than an hour from D.C., and is situated on national park land. The Filene Center has a covered outdoor stage surrounded by old trees and has a retreat like feel. I like to buy the lawn seats so I can enjoy a picnic with my family and friends. We arrive early to pick our spot and catch up with each other over appetizers. You can also buy food and beverages at the venue, as well as rent comfy lawn chairs. Check out the variety of performances and summer schedule here.
