Although autumn started late September, it’s only now that the temperatures have dropped and it’s truly beginning to feel like fall. With the (fairly) new season upon us, the District has many things to offer you. Here’s some exciting things happening in DC:
Watch a Sports Game
With the Nationals recently making it into the world series and hockey and basketball games starting, the season will be full with sports (and hopefully stay that way). If you think tickets might be too expensive, there’s plenty of cool bars and restaurants around the city to view the game.
Attend the DC Beer Fest
November 2nd is the DC beer fest at the Wharf hosted by the Nationals. Come out to see a fun event full of food trucks, fun activities, and of course, beer!
Mount Vernon by Candlelight
On November 29th and 30th, there’s a special opportunity to visit the famous Mount Vernon after hours. Learn more about the historical site by candlelight!
Food History Weekend
November 7-9, there will be food history weekend, a cool exhibit hosted by Smithsonian museums. There will be various cooking demonstrations, tons of hands-on learning, and some information on beer history.
Dia De Los Muertos
If you have kids, on November 2nd, there will be tons of fun festivities celebrating the Day of the Dead in Petworth. There’s plenty of art and crafts activities, a movie screening, and a parade.
Take a Ghost Tour
If you do a quick search online for ghost tours in DC, there’s plenty of tours to suit your spooky needs. Get in the Halloween spirit and be ready to uncover DC’s ghosts!
Photograph the Foliage
The DHM Team loves fall so it’s no surprise if you see many fall pictures on our Instagram. Some of the best spots to photograph the changing of the seasons are the National Mall, the National Arboretum, Georgetown, Capitol Hill, and the National Cathedral among others.
We hope this helped you take full advantage of what fall in DC has to offer.
Until next time,
The Team at DHM Media
