There's no better place to play tourist than in your own backyard. Find upcoming weekend events, plus ideas for safe, outdoor activities and discounts to local businesses.

If you want to take a break from the kiddos, escape the roommate, have a night to remember with your SO or take a personal day (or three), you live in the right place. Washington, DC is a world-class city awaiting your next adventure – even in times like these. Don't take the term “vacation days” literally. Plan a getaway in your own backyard and please remember to follow the latest safety information and wear a mask.
