One word: Trampolines. Grab your friends and head to Skyzone Trampoline Park! This birthday option is full of pure excitement, adrenaline, and adventure. Core attractions include a wall-to-wall freestyle jump, Skyslam basketball, Ultimate dodgeball, and a foam zone. If you’re looking for a fun way to stay active, be sure to check out the original home of aerial action.

Want to go the classy birthday brunch route? SEI is a top choice. Known as a “Top 25 restaurant in DC,” this modern Asian spot offers everything from bottom mimosas to mouth-watering sushi!
#FrayLife Tip: You’ll want to try the sushi because their sushi chef placed second in the World Sushi Olympics (yes, that’s a thing).
Location: 15950 Lee Hwy, Centreville, VA
If you’re willing to make the trek, the Winery at Bull Run is a great birthday spot for wine lovers! The view is gorgeous. The wines are award-winning. There is indoor seating, outdoor patio seating, and lawn seating for bring-your-own picnics. They offer gourmet cheeses and fresh baguettes, and a guided tour of the historic grounds.
#FrayLife Tip: You can reserve a table or whole rooms depending on the size of your party.

Looking for a memorable birthday dinner? Try Graffiato! This high-energy Italian restaurant is perfect for a group of pasta-loving friends. If you want to take your food to go, they have signature take-home pizza kits. They also recently launched a new menu featuring flavors from Japan, Spain, and beyond!
#FrayLife Tip: What’s super cool about this place is that the chefs will craft a custom menu for you and your party as well as beverage pairing options.
5. Spy Museum
Location: 800 F St NW
Had to have at least one museum on this list. Known as the “shadowy world of espionage,” The International Spy Museum holds the world’s largest and most comprehensive collection of espionage artifacts. From secret history to spy lessons, this downtown DC staple has something to pique everyone’s interests!
#FrayLife Tip: For the James Bond fans, The Spy Museum has opened a special Bond exhibit: “Exquisitely Evil” to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Bond film villains.
