1. The National Arboretum is now open on weekends and everyday during the week! Hours on Saturday & Sunday are 8am – 5pm, and Monday through Friday 1-5pm. These things to know before you go will help you plan a visit. And you can read a bit more about the Arboretum in the round-up of the best area places to spend a beautiful day outdoors — it tops the list!
2. Have you heard about Swimply? It’s a new online service that lets you search for private pools to rent. Interesting concept. Would you use it? (Thanks to KFDC reader Jessica for the heads-up on this.)
3. Starting this coming week, Lincoln’s Cottage is offering a safe and socially distanced outdoor version of their Social Studies program for young learners. Each week — Tuesday-Thursday, 10-11am — brings a new and exciting activity. Reserve an outdoor table for your family and join in an exploration of your own emotions through storytelling, hands-on activities, and reflection. The program was developed for ages 2-8, but children of all ages are welcome to participate. Admission is $25-35/family. Be sure to sign up in advance.
4. Do you know about The Girlfriend? The AARP’s weekly newsletter is targeted to Gen X women, and it always includes relevant articles, good tips, and interesting insight for that demographic.
