1. You can stock up on fresh produce, baked goods, and meats while maintaining social distance at Eastern Market’s Tuesday Market, which runs weekly this summer. Other special offerings including cooking demos and free yoga (11m – 12pm) and Zumba (1-2pm) classes. It’s also close to the new playground at the Eastern Market Metro Park, where the kids can romp around.
2. National Harbor has some new boating options that allow for social distancing and fun on the water. Monumental Boat Tours has a new boat, Craigcat, that can be rented for tours of the Potomac from Mount Vernon to DC. Each boat accommodates one or two people and a guide goes along in a separate boat. There is also the Float Boat 360 that allows a group with room to socially distance and bring your own beverages for a fun day on the water (I did this for a friend’s birthday last summer, and it was really fun). And if you’re up for it, the Capital Wheel is open along with shops and restaurants. This FAQ page has info on safety precautions being taken and more info about their reopening.
