What does summer look like in Washington, D.C.? Lots of folks visit the area to see the monuments, the White House, our wonderful variety of museums, or perhaps a professional baseball, soccer or women's basketball game. For those who enjoy a lovely walk along wooden boardwalks or paddling around in a canoe I have another suggestion:
Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens located in Washington, D.C. is one of the many free parks you can visit for a lovely stroll through the gardens, or if you would like you can join one of theieducational tours led by the National Park Service. If you visit in the summer, be sure to get there early. After sunning themselves in the morning the flowers close when the temperatures rise. Once the flowers close they will not unfold their petals until morning.
