PicMonkey Collage Oct

Thirty days past September…

Can you believe it’s almost October!? (We couldn’t either!) We’re certainly ready to celebrate though! Here’s our list of the top 5 things to do in DC this October.

Fall Festivals
No October list is complete without a few mentions of pumpkin patches and good ole fashioned hay bale rides! Check out the variety of fun for the whole family pumpkin festivals in the DMV area this October.

Southwest DC Arts Festival 
The quadrant that houses our new National Mall location will be throwing a weekend-long festival to celebrate the arts October 3-5. Meander around the Southwest Waterfront as you enjoy a market, musical performances, film screenings, walking tours, and more!

Taste of DC
From October 11-12, taste samples from over 80 of the best DC restaurants during this food festival. Be sure to visit the special farm-to-fork zone for some seriously local chow.

Columbus Day Weekend
Three day weekends are always a reason to celebrate, but this year you can take advantage of the extra time-off by exploring your own city! Play tourist for a day with a Bike and Roll (orSmithsonian National Mall Tours) bike or Segway tour. You won’t regret it!

Halloween in DC
So little time, so much to do! Late October is chock full of Halloween-related events in DC. From Fright nights, to haunted houses, to costume parties, to Drag Queen races, the District is certainly not short on All Hallows Eve activities.

“Put it away. Uncar for a day.”

Yep- you heard us! Go without a car this Monday, September 22 in honor of Car Free Day!

Car Free Day is an internationally recognized event that encourages everyone to get around without the use of their cars for one day! Instead of driving, try taking the train, bus, biking, skateboarding, walking, jumping, skipping or, a carpool! Not too bad, right?

Join the movement held in over 1,500 cities (40 countries!) and pledge to be car free (or car-lite) this Monday here. You can also check out the myriad of activities and events going on in the DMV area around Car Free Day to celebrate.

Need a bike for the day? We can help with that too! Use code “CarFree” for $5 off your full day bike rental on 9/22.
