Yes, June, July, and August are hot in Washington, DC, but, it’s not always the temperature that’s bringing the heat! There are places and events to discover and enjoy that will put a fun sizzle in your summer, as well.
Outdoor entertainment abounds. I personally cannot wait to see Lionel Richie again while dining on a picnic blanket under the stars at Wolf Trap. Jazz in the garden at the National Gallery of Art is a joy to the senses and brings an eclectic and fun group together.

Outdoor dining is a favorite of mine because of the way it transports me, bringing another element to the senses. A few alfresco options to check out: the new outdoor lounge at the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown has a sexy, fun vibe; the patio at the Salamander hotel overlooking the gorgeous manicured grounds is relaxing and fun; Blue Duck’s patio is situated by a freshly maintained garden of herbs and veggies; and a casual cocktail outdoors at Millie’s in Spring Valley completes my day or night.

If you do need to escape the heat, summer is also meant for weekend getaways. The Bellmoor Inn and Spa, located in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, allows you to enjoy the fun, the sun, and the ocean.
Make the most of the DC swelter this summer and you will find some special experiences!
