Impending finals might have you cooped up in Foggy Bottom, so spend some time exploring different D.C. neighborhoods this weekend.
From Georgetown’s newest installation of Georgetown Glow and a pop-up market in Dupont Circle to a DMV-wide Thai restaurant week, there’s no excuse to stay at home.
Georgetown Glow: A New Season of Light
Since 2014, Georgetown has hosted a seasonally changing art and light exhibition called Georgetown Glow. For each season – summer, fall, winter and spring – Georgetown Glow displays the work of local artists throughout the neighborhood. This spring, visitors can admire five art and light displays placed throughout the neighborhood as you shop and dine. You can even sign up for guided walking tours of the art.
