D.C. May Be Cold And Wet Outside, But It's Still Thrilling Inside

Average temperature low and high: 27°- 47°
February still sees snow on the ground in Washington D.C., but it's an excellent month to take advantage of inside activities. Not only are museums, zoos, and aquariums fun to visit without crowds, but you can celebrate President's Day in the nation's capital by visiting memorials and historic sites, or even some of the presidential homes that are a short drive away. For people craving a little time outside, go ice skating at the National Mall and warm up with s'mores and hot chocolate at a nearby cafe.

Things to Do in Washington D.C. in February

Visit the National Gallery of Art

Visit the National Gallery of Art
Brighten a dreary month by wandering through the National Gallery of Art to admire bright and beautiful pieces. There's over 2000 pieces in the building so it's easy to while away a day. After you've seen work from Da Vinci and Van Gogh, take a quick turn in the Sculpture Garden and then grab a snack at the Gelato bar. It's a lovely day that might inspire you to get more creative in your own life.

Have drinks at a jazz club on the U Street Corridor

Have drinks at a jazz club on the U Street Corridor
Previously known as "Black Broadway", the U Street Corridor is a hub of jazz clubs, eclectic dining, and other fun entertainment options. When you're trying to stave off the bitter chill that comes with February in D.C., visiting a few of the jazz clubs for a cocktail and some live music can be the perfect way to spend an evening. JoJo's harkens back to 1920s glamour, and you can snag a seat by the fireplace to stay toasty. Twins is another excellent option, featuring both hot new artists and the older jazz greats, all in an intimate venue where you're sure to have a good view.
