Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan Station
The red line is the best way to anywhere downtown! It'll take you close to the National Mall, the White House, Chinatown, and Union Station. You can also switch lines off of the red line to get to Reagan Airport and BWI.
This is the closest Metro station, it's within walking distance. Take a right, up the hill, and then walk thru the park and across the bridge.
Closest Metro station. Red Line access direct to Bethesda, downtown D.C., Union Station and Silver Spring.
It's the National Zoo, of course! And it's totally FREE. See the pandas, the lions, tigers and bears...Oh My.
