ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE CINEMA
Attention all film buffs: our staff suggests dinner and a movie at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Watch the classic movies of your youth or the newest Hollywood blockbuster. It’s a movie experience like no other, and the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema should be on your list of top things to do in Ashburn. Have a movie-themed dinner with a local craft beer or a specialty cocktail. Not a night owl? Enjoy brunch and show with the family. If you can quote the lines of your favorite movies or love to sing along with musicals, the Alamo Drafthouse offers Quote-Along and Sing-Along movies for the crowd to get loud and involved.

Our staff and their families love Ashburn’s new Topgolf entertainment complex. With three levels and 102 hitting bays, golfers of all ages and experience levels can play this point-scoring golf game any time of the year. Open from 9:00 a.m. to midnight, Sunday through Thursday, and 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, Topgolf is not your expected golfing experience. They offer a fantastic brunch menu on the weekends (complete with mimosas), salads and sandwiches for lunch, and signature burgers, and shareable appetizers for dinner. How to get started at Topgolf.
National AIR & SPACE MUSEUM
Our staff recommends visiting a national treasure, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum companion facility, the F. Udvar-Hazy Center, in Chantilly, VA. Driving the ten miles away from Dr. Mountcastle’s practice, it is easy to get away for a day to explore aviation exhibitions, all things in aircraft, and hands-on science demonstrations. Not only do they offer educational films in the Airbus IMAX Theater, they regularly show newly released movies as well. Take a free tour with a knowledgeable volunteer anytime during your outing. Purchase tickets and see a schedule of events.
