The best ice cream in DC, minus the brain freeze
During these dog days of summer (basically any day ending in -y in DC), there’s nothing like a sweet and delicious frozen treat to cool you down. With so many spots for summertime scoops, we've compiled a handy list of 10 local places to sample some of the best frozen confections in the city!
Prepare for the most unforgettable summer to date
Summertime and the living is easy. Things are slowly opening up in DC but with museums and other attractions still closed, we’ve been spending more and more time outside.
This season of easygoing, laid-back living is chock-full of fun things to do. In the fun-loving spirit of this favorite time of year, we came up with a can’t-miss checklist for an unforgettable summer in DC's great outdoors. PSA: Be safe out there! Remember to wear a mask and social distance.
HARD HAT TOUR: Play, Lounge & Catch Fireflies on the LAWN at The National Building Museum's Summer Block Party
Summertime, summertime, sum sum summertime! Each summer, the National Building Museum hosts the exciting Summer Block Party installations, an innovative and interactive experience that highlights incredible feats of design and engineering in the building's magnificent Great Hall.
Since 2014, we've played hide-and-seek inside a giant maze, relaxed at the Beach and last year we hung out and "swam" in the pool at the Fun House. This year, we'll be chilling and playing croquet on the Lawn, the museum's upcoming summer exhibit that's fun for all ages.
Check out behind-the-scene pictures from my hard hat tour in the final countdown to Opening Day on July 4th!
