What to do in Washington, D.C. this Holiday Season
Navigating the crowds in the nation’s capital can be tough no matter how or when you’re traveling. Luckily, we’ve got the insider scoop on spending the holidays in D.C. so you don’t miss a minute of merriment. Through all sections of the nation’s capital, find convenient parking spots and book in advance through Parking.com.
When it comes to trees, the National Christmas Tree is a can’t miss. Located in President’s Park, the tree is decorated with handmade ornaments from 56 U.S. states and territories- bonus points if you can find one from yours. If one tree is just not enough, make the trek across the National Mall (you won’t be the only one) to see the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree on the West Lawn.
For the perfect gift, look no further than the Downtown Holiday Market outside the Smithsonian Museum of Art and National Portrait Gallery. Aside from unique vendors offering everything from jewelry to woodwork, the market also boasts live entertainment and diverse food options. Didn’t find what you’re looking for there? Union Station is always worth a trip, decked out in holiday flair and just the place to find a “Straight Outta D.C.” t-shirt or Shake Shack gift card for that special someone in your life. Find convenient parking to your D.C. destination and have peace of mind knowing you won’t be driving around looking for the perfect spot.
Looking for lights? Escape from downtown into Georgetown, D.C.’s most historic neighborhood, and experience the sparkle of the season at Georgetown GLOW, the region’s only curated exhibition of outdoor public light art installations. Parking in Georgetown is easy to book directly through Parking.com.
To keep burning off the holiday energy, lace up for a few more laps at the National Gallery of Art Ice Rink. Other options to get some steps in are the Christkindlmarkt and the United States Botanic Garden’s Season Greetings attraction. Parking in Georgetown is easy to book directly through Parking.com.
With these tips and tricks, your D.C. trip will have you feeling the holiday cheer long after the season is over. Navigate to each attraction by vehicle and book your parking spots in advance during the crowded holiday season.
