WASHINGTON — The scorching heat is gone and so are the summer crowds. Here are the top 10 things to do this fall in D.C., before the frost and freeze set in.
Picnic at Gravelly Point
The sun is bright and the air is cool, and fall is the best time of year for a picnic. Any green space will do, but Gravelly Point is a favorite spot among Washingtonians.
Nestled between the Potomac River and the George Washington Parkway, the park is an ideal place to watch the planes take off and land at Reagan National Airport.
