Explore the world through live programs at National Geographic
When I first moved to DC, I was so in awe of everything. I couldn't believe that I could drive around and see the great monuments and the Capitol building and walk around the National Mall and visit world class museums all for free! (Actually, I am still in awe of all these things.) Something I discovered soon after arriving and loved most of all was the National Geographic building and all the amazing programming that was offered there.
I grew up poring through the distinct yellow trimmed magazines that came to our home each month filled with amazing pictures of the world and articles about things that stoked my imagination and filled me with a desire to learn more about everything. I have had wanderlust from early childhood and the National Geographic magazine was a wonderful way to explore from my suburban Richmond bedroom. So I was delighted to find out that as an adult I could continue those adventures at the National Geographic headquarters building just a few blocks away from my first job in DC.
The live programs provided an even more wonderful way to learn about new ideas or delve a little deeper into old ideas, meet amazing fellow explorers who lectured about their adventures, and see places that I might never see through films and other kinds of presentations. The variety and quality were incredible!
National Geographic still offers these amazing live programs! Check out the fall events schedule here. The programs cover a wide variety of topics so you'll likely find something that interest you. The Travel Journal and the Quest for Adventure series especially caught my eye because I always enjoy the possibility of going to far off places. Or at least live vicariously through someone else's adventure. Whenever I attend one of these events, I feel like I had a little adventure myself!
