From touring gardens to visiting the zoo and enjoying the sunset on the golf course, see how you can take advantage of the extra hour of daylight after it arrives on March 11.
WASHINGTON — Daylight saving time begins early Sunday morning, March 11, when clocks move forward one hour at 2 a.m.
Some bars and restaurants will stay open an extra hour that night, until 4 a.m., due to a special District law. Other attractions, like public golf courses, the national zoo and the grounds of the arboretum take advantage of the extra hour of sunlight later in the day.
You can enjoy your extra evening daylight by staying out later with your skateboard at local skate parks, paddling on the Potomac or Tidal Basin, and more, as the weather warms up throughout the spring.
