Beat The Heat

In Be Merry on June 7, 2010 at 1:54 pm

Summer has officially descended on the Capitol. I can no longer step out into my backyard without being instantly attacked by skeeters (even doused in bug spray) and even the most prim and proper among us are pit stained and stinky. So when the city heat has got you down here are some refreshing escapes.

After the Dive!

Public Pools:

Our friends over in Co.Heights swear by Banneker Pool‎ @ 2500 Georgia Ave. NW

The William H Rumsey Aquatic Center is an indoor pool but opened to anyone with a DC ID @ 635 North Carolina Ave. SE

A little more adventurous?

Head out of the city to Chesapeake Beach, MD. The beaches are small but the water is pleasant and the locals will teach you a thing or two about the mating rituals of horseshoe crabs.
