Traveling alone to DC on Christmas weekend. What to do?

So I have a few days off and just want to get away on a small budget. I have decided that I will take the bus to Washington, DC over the Christmas weekend, and will probably be staying at a hostel or maybe couchsurfing. I will probably stay for one or two nights. I don't have any friends or family in the DC area and, so far, I couldn't find anyone to travel with me, so I will be traveling alone. [more inside]

Looking for a bumpy ride (to induce labor) in DC

We're not convinced that it'll work, either -- but going on 8 days past our due date, we're game for trying anything. Any suggestions on a bumpy road around the DC/Maryland metro area that we could drive along to try to get this labor thing going? Or maybe nearby farms that host hay rides this time of year (ideally one where we don't have to bring 25 of our closest friends)? [more inside]
