Autumn is a wonderful time to live in or visit the Washington, DC region. With the hot days of summer behind us, here are a few ways to enjoy the Fall:
> Football season has already begun. Check out the Washington Redskins schedule http://www.redskins.com/news-and-events/schedule.html and enjoy the games with some friends. They play division rivals Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, October 6th. It will be played in Dallas, but you can always watch it on your favorite big screen.
> Kids Euro Festival presented by the 27 European Union Member States at the House of Sweden. http://www.kidseurofestival.org/index.php
> Wine and Beer Festivals – Adult-like fun can be had at one of the select wine festivals featuring Virginia wines. http://www.virginia.org/winefestivals. If beer is more your preference, you may enjoy celebrating at a local Oktoberfest. The Washington Post recently posted their “Top 5” – http://www.washingtonpost.com/gog/best-bets/best-oktoberfest-celebrations,91079.html
> The 2013-2014 performing arts season has begun! If you have something more cultural in mind, you should check out http://www.culturecapital.com/
> Taste of DC http://thetasteofdc.org/ Sample favorite DC restaurants and join 40,000 “friends” for food and fun over the Columbus Day weekend.
These are just a few fun ideas to do in DC this fall. Whether you plan fall hikes in Great Falls, Roosevelt Island, C&O Canal, take long scenic drives along Shenandoah National Park, or enjoy one of the many sporting events or concerts, I wish you all a happy, safe and fun fall season!
