1. You can still enjoy some fall fun at Great Country Farms in Bluemont, VA. The sprawling play area and corn maze will be open through November 22, and there’s late season apples picking, too. Open daily 10am-5pm, and admission is $10/child, $12/adult (apples sold separately).
2. Tomorrow, November 11, is Veterans Day — and a Free Entrance Day at national parks! This means there’s no cost for entry where they usually charge to get in. Take advantage of complimentary admission and the day off from school. Some ideas… hit the trail at Shenandoah or Great Falls, explore Prince William Forest Park, go to Fort McHenry, or visit Harpers Ferry.
3. Tickets just went on sale for The Lodge at The Yards, a socially-distanced après ski-themed event happening November 20-22 in the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood. See details on the website, and note that reservations will be kid and parent-friendly with safe, socially-distanced activities for young ones on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 10-11:30am.
4. 2020 Black Restaurant Week in the DMV has started and is running through November 15, with more than 70 area restaurants and other food purveyors participating.
