During Winter Months

There are so many holiday events in D.C. The U.S. Capital Christmas Tree Lightning is very special as well as the holiday events at the National Harbor. Featured image courtesy of @NationHarbor’s Instagram.

Old Town Alexandria

Directly outside of the Capital sits Old Town Alexandria. Shops and restaurants line the streets of this quaint area. Recommend walking around for a few hours then hopping on a water taxi to the National Harbor where events take place all year long.
