Why Visit DC in the Fall

August 4th, 2021

Fall is the perfect time to visit DC. You don’t have the crowds of spring’s cherry blossom festival and the weather is lovely. It’s also a great domestic travel option for those who want to get away within the US. Here are a few reasons to visit DC this fall:

The newly reopened Dupont Circle Hotel’s Doyle bar terrace is the best spot to enjoy a cocktail and some light bites al fresco and people watch in Dupont Circle (not to mention all the rooms have just been refurbished). The Pembroke restaurant is a popular brunch spot and is reopening for dinner in September.

The Phillips Gallery is celebrating its 100th anniversary – it opened in 1921 as America’s first modern art museum.

A memorial dedicated to the 35th president, The Kennedy Center turns 50 in 2021 and this fall will launch its Archives which will come to life as part of the patron experience.  Designed as a living memorial, oral histories and rarely seen materials from the Center’s Archives will serve as the source and inspiration for a series of overlapping installations throughout the campus. These various installations will include archival artifacts in immersive, dynamic, and accessible ways, in person and online, throughout the season If it isn’t too soon,

The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History is hosting an exhibition, Outbreak, an examination of disease in the modern world prompted by the Ebola outbreak, heightened by the Zika epidemic and coinciding with the centennial of the Spanish influenza pandemic (now through May 1, 2022).

Amtrak, which was incorporated in DC, celebrates its 50thanniversary in 2021 and recently introduced its new Acela trains between Boston and Washington DC that reduce carbon consumption by almost half.
