A Brit who has never been stateside before but has devoted rudimentary study to American folklore plans to visit the Smithsonian Museums in Washington DC. Specifically the Museum of Crafts and the American History Museum.
They hope to enlarge their cultural experience by playing several innings of genuine American horseshoes. This is a great sport for a family or for young couples just starting to date, and it is played on what's variously called a "pitch", "pit", or "court".
There are no doubt lots of private residences fitted out with a horseshoe pitch, but... I have been thinking that Washington is a bit too urban for this type of sport and hence not available for a tourist.
Question: where in the Washington DC area can a tourist play horseshoes at a publically supervised pitch?
Note: for this question "Washington DC area" includes the Tri State area and any Maryland or Virginia county that touches the I-495 Capital Beltway.
