D.C. is hot with culture and culinary delights during cold January

Average temperature low and high: 25°- 45°
Temperatures may be in the low 40s during January in Washington, D.C., but luckily, there's a neverending list of things to do indoors. Locals love the Spy Fest at The International Spy Museum, cheering on the Wizards and the Capitals and sipping on gothic-inspired cocktails at the Sleepy Hollow Bar. For those willing to brave the cold, an epic snowball fight, ice skating, and Chinatown's Chinese New Year bash may be right up your alley. And don't forget about D.C.'s Restaurant Week, and to bookmark this page for upcoming events.

Things to do in Washington D.C.

Things to Do in Washington D.C. in January

Go ice-skating

Go ice-skating
Every winter, Washington D.C. bundles up and straps on skates to enjoy ice skating at one of the numerous rinks that pop up. Whether you choose to hit the ice at the Sculpture Garden at the National Gallery of Art, amid beautiful art pieces, or skating the trail at Enchant Christmas, where you can stop at one of the food and drink stands lining the path, it's a fun and inexpensive way to spend an evening. If you tend to spend more time falling than skating, Pentagon Row also offers classes to help you refine your skills.

Visit the Smithsonian

Visit the Smithsonian
Any trip to the nation's capital should include a trip to some of the greatest museums in the country. The Smithsonian is a group of museums where you can learn about and see artifacts from the history of the United States, view stunning artwork, and explore the multitude of cultures that have blended into our current society. The icy days of January are a perfect time to make the trip - since it's the off-season for tourism, the buildings won't be overcrowded. If you're traveling with kids, pick up the National Park passport in advance so you can get it stamped in the different buildings.
