Entertaining Holiday Company



While we all know there are activities a-plenty in DC, when you’re a local, it’s easy to get sick of the standard National Mall grind. Treat holiday house guests to a fun trip in our nation’s capitol without dying of boredom or museum fatigue. Check out our ideas below!


Union Market

1309 5th St NE, Washington, DC 20002


Union Market offers unique vendors, delicious food, and an ideal location for exploring nearby points of interest, such as Union Station or H Street Corridor. Perfect for lunch and post-meal wandering.


Yards Park

355 Water St SE, Washington, DC 20003


Pack a picnic and head to Yards Park for the urban waterfront experience. Stunning sunset views make this a great spot for happy hour (and family photos) as well.


National Arboretum

3501 New York Ave NE, Washington, DC 20002


Historical enough to earn points with tourists, but unique enough for it to be enjoyable for locals as well. Explore this beautiful natural space on a sunny afternoon.


Meridian Hill Park

16th St NW & W Street NW, Washington, DC 20009


Channel your inner Parisian at Meridian Hill Park, with its beautiful architecture and historic statues. Bonus points for being walking distance to both U Street and Adams Morgan for a bit of cultural exploration.


National Museum of African American History and Culture

1400 Constitution Ave NW, Washington, DC 20560


Let’s be honest – tales of painfully-long lines shied many of us away from visiting this incredible addition to the Smithsonian family when it first opened. Use tourists as your excuse to finally go for it! The exhibits are breathtaking, eye-opening, and truly worth any lines you may encounter.
