Winter Wonderland in Washington, DC - The Best Things to Do This Winter in DC

Dear Journalists,

There are so many reasons to visit Washington, DC in 2019, and here are just a few:

  • Throughout 2019, the city celebrates the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment’s passage, guaranteeing women the right to vote, as well as the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and the following LGBTQ movement. Events and exhibitions commemorate both historic moments.

  • Several new hotel brands for DC have opened including the Moxy and Eaton Hotel, or will open soon, like The Conrad in February.

  • During February’s Date Nights DC, find romance in the District and 100 date ideas on, along with hotel packages and deals at restaurants and attractions.

  • DC remains an incredible value for families. Visit the new Fossil Hall at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in June, reopening after a five-year closure. Find T.Rex towering at the center of this free exhibit. 

  • The REACH at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts opens in September, marking the living memorial to JFK’s first expansion since opening.
