Ice Skating Wind Down
Where: Ice rinks around the DC Area
When: Throughout the weekend
Admission: Varies by rink

Skate your last loops at our local ice rinks. Both Canal Park and the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden rinks close after Sunday.  Several others have already shut down for the season, and a couple more are only open through next weekend. See this post listing them all for details on where you can glide under the sky one last time this winter. (And with temps hitting the 70s, it’ll be a good idea to call ahead to make sure they’re open.)

History & Gardens
Where: Tudor Place | Georgetown, DC
When: Throughout the weekend
Admission: $10 suggested donation for tours

Starting Friday, Tudor Place Historic House & Garden, reopens after being closed for awhile, and docent-led guided tours of the house will be offered again. It’s DC’s only historic house museum with family ties to Martha and George Washington — with over 18,000 objects, it contains the largest Washington collection outside of Mount Vernon.  Tours are interesting for both kids and adults!  Advance registration is suggested for timed entry tickets, and docent-led tours start on the hour. You can also tour the gardens and are welcome to bring along a picnic to enjoy on the grounds (FYI: No tickets are required for just the garden. Visitors to the historic house age 12+ must provide proof of vaccination upon entry and masks are required in all indoor spaces.)

The Tudor Place garden party is typically a subtly competitive hat show among Georgetown’s smart set. This year the hat was usurped by something chic and essential — galoshes.

The May event, now in its 29th year, was moved to September and landed on one of the rainiest days, leaving Tudor Place’s lush lawn a muddy terrain. Rubber boots, umbrellas and the occasional poncho helped guests usher in the first evening of autumn — and one of the first major events on the social calendar in well over a year.
