Summer in the City

August 2, 2010

August is a great time to visit Washington. There’s less traffic as many Washingtonians head to the beach plus lots of cultural events designed for summer travelers.

See our current specials to plan your trip now and don’t miss our favorite August happenings around town including:

Legg Mason Tennis Classic – See top tennis players including Andy Roddick, John Isner, and Radek Stepanek play at the William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center in Rock Creek Park July 31 – August 8.

Restaurant Week –  try some of Washington’s best restaurants at a discount August 16 – 22, including our own 14K restaurant. Special 3 course menus are $20.10 for lunch and $35.10 for dinner.

Mary Poppins at the Kennedy Center –   any visit to Washington DC should include the free tour of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and this August you can also see the hit Broadway musical Mary Poppins through August 22.

Avenue Q at the Harman Center for the Arts through August 15. (Just make sure you understand the content – just because it’s puppets, it’s not necessarily family oriented entertainment.)

Dog Days of Summer

Remember that the Hamilton Crowne Plaza is a pet friendly hotel – we welcome your traveling companion. So do many of the local restaurants with outdoor seating areas including Blue Duck Tavern and Zatinya.
