What to do in WDC this Winter

Sure, the snow came, and the government shut down. But don’t let these situations stop you from getting out and enjoying unique and fun activities in the area. We have plenty of places worth experiencing that are also off the beaten path, and that aren’t flooded with tourists. WDC Curbed has put together a list of 26 such places; list below is a summary of some of our favorites from the list.

Larz Anderson House. One of the largest mansions in Washington DC, Anderson House is a 50-room house once hailed as one of the most fashionable homes of its day back in the early 1900s. Past Presidents have stayed at Anderson House, providing a variety of historical anecdotes along with architectural intrigue throughout the mansion.

Atlas Performing Arts Center. There’s nothing like live theater. Enjoy an excellent performance at a variety of different shows presented throughout the year at this lesser-known performing arts center. Once a movie theater, it reopened in 2005 as a stage performance venue.

Brookland Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. It’s a mouthful to say and a grand sight to see. Anyone who love big architecture will want to take some time to explore this incredible building which happens to be one of the largest churches in the world.

Eastern Market. If you have a shopping list, there’s one place to go where chances are likely you’ll find what you need. From food market to flea market this is one of the regions’ largest indoor markets.

National Museum of Women in the Arts. With over 5,000 works of art by over 1,000 women, this is the largest museum dedicated to the artistic endeavors of women. Check out works by women from the 16th century up through to today. There are 10 different exhibits put on each year so there’s always something new to check out.

The Phillips Collection Museum. Art lovers won’t want to miss this Dupont Circle museum was the first US museum of modern art. Opened in 1921 artistic masters such as Monet and Renoir can be seen in the museum, and much more.

One Extra Place to Visit: Who can forget the famous scene in The Exorcist, where the steps in Georgetown were featured? We never will as this is now an historical marker in WDC, with the most recent list of newly added historical markers approved by the WDC Historic Preservation Board.
