Washington D.C. has two delightful seasons: spring and autumn. In spring the city's ornamental fruit trees are blossoming, and its many gardens are in bloom. Summers can be uncomfortably hot and humid. By autumn most of the summer crowds have left and you can enjoy the sights in peace. Following our travel tips to travel NYC to Washington DC, to visit Washington for every season.
With every change of the seasons, D.C. offers new pleasures for sports and outdoors enthusiasts.
In winter you can have an old-fashioned afternoon of ice-skating and hot chocolate in the National Gallery's Sculpture Garden, or go to the Verizon Center to see the Wizards play basketball or the Capitals play hockey.
Come spring, the city emerges from the cold with activities everywhere. Runners throng Rock Creek Park, Frisbee contests and soccer games fill up the Mall, and boats float down the Potomac.
In summer, baseball fans head to Nationals Park for games, and this greenery-laced city seems to become one big outdoor playground.
When fall arrives, the seasonal colors of the trees in Rock Creek Park are a spectacular sight for bikers, hikers, and runners. Tickets to see the Redskins at FedEx Field are among the city's most prized commodities.
