DC Holiday Guide

As we roll further into December, be sure to celebrate the holly jolly season before it passes. After all, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. Here are our favorite ways to enjoy the holidays in DC:


For the holiday season, Mockingbird Hill in Shaw has transformed into Miracle on Seventh Street, an over the top winter wonderland bar. Stop by for a few drinks, and a few laughs, with drinks like the Nog Shot and a classic in the making, the Gretchen, Stop Trying to Make Fetch Happen.

A tradition nearly 100 years old, visiting the National Tree is something you need to check off your bucket list. The massive tree can be seen sparkling every night until the new year on The White House lawn.

Dust off your old ice skates (or rent them) and take a spin around the rink—any of them. With many options in the area, you can choose from the winter wonderlands at Washington Harbour, the Sculpture Garden, Pentagon Row, or out at Reston Town Center. Sure, you’re just going around and around in circles, but it still makes for a merry afternoon or evening.

The Downtown Holiday Market is back, boasting a spectacular outdoor shopping environment. Whether you’re on a mission to find a unique stocking stuffer, or prefer just browsing, swing by the market in Penn Quarter for an outdoor shopping spree.

Everyone loves cozying up by a warm fire with a tasty beverage in hand. Good news for those of us without a fireplace, there are a few in the city for you to enjoy. Cozy up at places like Barcelona, Iron Gate, or the Biergarten Haus.
