This man-made island in the Anacostia River was twice proposed to be a theme park. Lucky for us, that never panned out: It’s 40 acres of nature trails over wooden bridges and under mural-covered overpasses. You won’t find many tourists there, but you’ll see locals picnicking, kayaking, hiking and birdwatching; the island has more than 100 species of resident and migratory birds. Every spring, the island hosts the Kingman Island Bluegrass and Folk Festival, attracting D.C.’s more eclectic crowd for a day of live music, craft beer and people-watching. BTW: The island offers free canoe tours throughout the year. Full guide at: https://www.washingtonpost.com/travel/united-states/washington-dc-local-guide/
