|One of my favorite winter activities is to go to the National Museum of Natural History and spend some time in the Butterfly Pavilion|
The winter is a great time to take in many of the fantastic exhibits because the lines and wait times are often significantly lower.
Across the street lies the Petersen House where President Lincoln spent his final hours. Entry is free to these historical exhibits. The theatre season at Ford's usually begins in the fall season and runs through May. There are many holiday shows and other fantastic historical or politically-themed musicals to enjoy.
Stroll the sites
|All of the Christmas trees at Mount Vernon are "themed". This one is about the General himself.|
