Looking for something fun and happy to do in Washington, D.C., this fall? There’s a lot going on, as always, but the fall is a great time to check out some of the different events and sights in the capitol. Here are just a few things you can do.
You can see some amazing fall foliage in the area, so if you love the outdoors, now’s the time to go hiking, biking, or running. Some of the best places to go include the U.S. National Arboretum, Shenandoah National Park, and the Rock Creek Park. If you’re going to one of the parks like Shenandoah, which is out of the main metro area, you might want to take a picnic and make a day out of it. Since it’s a bit cooler now, be sure to take a jacket with you.
Don’t like the crisp fall weather? Stay indoors by checking out some of DC’s museums and theaters. There are a lot of really neat exhibits. The National Gallery of Art, the Hirshhorn Museum, and the Corcoran Gallery, one of the oldest in the country, are all great options.
If theater is more your thing, you’ll find some amazing shows at The Kennedy Center, the Signature Theatre, and the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company.
Finally, don’t forget football! the Washington Redskins will be starting their season soon at FedEx Field!
Flowers make everyone happy, too, so bring some happiness to your home with our great fall flowers in Washington, D.C.
