D.C. has a reputation for hot summers, but these cool events will keep you sharp as you gear up for fall. Throughout the city, different museums, embassies, and groups host a variety of programs year-round to engage the community and keep life interesting.
One of the wonderful things about the D.C. metro area is its biking-friendliness. With scenic paths and designated lanes crisscrossing the city, cycling to work, school, or just for fun is simple and safe. According to reports, D.C. is one of the safest cities in the country for bicyclists.
