10 Things to Do in the Summer in DC... or before summer ends!




water...
a good number of the best options for summer activity involve water
definitely... water is precious
water is life

but what else is there to do?

1. Go to the Beach!
Washington DC is not that far from the beach
Rehoboth... Ocean City... Dewy... whatever
go to the beach
if the beach has a boardwalk... indulge yourself and go to the boardwalk

2.Go to the Mountains!
but... maintain the theme of water
Cunningham Falls is not far from DC
a little further... Deep Creek Lake or somewhere in West Virginia or maybe the Shenandoahs
when planning your trip...
check to see if there are any State Parks with lakes or ponds that allow swimming

3.GO LOCAL!
DC has all sorts of public pools... check out your neighborhood pool
ask your friends where they go
be a guest at your friends' pool

4."Take me out to the ballgame!"
Catch a Washington National's Game
Go Nats!
I am not much for baseball... or being a spectator at sporting events as a whole
yet... every year I try to take in a game or two
definitely a good time

5. Fort Reno
across from Wilson High School is a small park called Fort Reno
in this park is a stage that has hosted all sorts of local music at their summer festival over the last couple of decades
pack a picnic lunch... grab a blanket and frisbee and make an evening of it
also... live music at The National Zoo
or maybe something at Carter Baron
