Winter 2016/2017 Edition

Ultimate Guide to Winter in Washington, DC

Dear Journalists,

As we continue to celebrate the holiday season, Washington, DC is preparing for a busy 2017. On Jan. 20, we’ll welcome visitors for the 58th presidential inauguration, and washington.org is a wealth of information with hotel packages and events throughout the city. February begins Date Nights DC, when the hospitality community unites in its celebration of all things romance – and it’s a great time to escape to the city. Then the four-week National Cherry Blossom Festival kicks off in celebration of spring on March 20.

In this newsletter, find even more reasons to visit and write about DC in 2017, including neighborhood food trends, information about the complete transformation of the Southwest Waterfront, and a cultural calendar including the Hirshhorn’s major Kusama: Infinity Mirrors exhibit.

Have you taken a look at our #MyDCcool Instagram feed lately? Visitors and locals are embracing their moments and what they love most in the city with nearly 80,000 inspiring images and posts.

I look forward to working together on your coverage, and please feel free to contact a member of the team for any story needs.

Happy holidays,

Danielle Davis
Director of Communications
