Things to do

Brush Stroke

1. National Mall 

Head to the National Mall for plenty of open space to enjoy the snow and lots of landmarks for photos. Plus, there's usually a snowball fight.

The National Arboretum is very quiet in the winter but one of my favorite place to go after a snowfall. Explore over 400 acres of a winter wonderland.

3. Malcolm X Park 

Malcolm X Park near Columbia Heights is a beloved neighborhood spot to enjoy the snow. Run around in the snow, build a snowman, and enjoy the snowfall on the architecture.

4. Great Falls  

Great Falls is a little bit of a drive outside DC but is a great place for a winter walk. Bundle up and explore the snowy paths around the falls. The entry fee is included in the National Parks Pass.

Another great spot for a winter walk is Rock Creek Park. The snow looks beautiful on the trees and falling on the water.
