  1. What once felt like DC’s secret garden has become quite a popular spot — with good reason.  The Dumbarton Oaks Gardens are one of the most enchanting places in the District, imo, with an amazing array of flora that’s especially gorgeous in spring.  You can read about it on KFDC here,  here, here, and here (yes, we love it that much).  You used to be able to walk right up and buy tickets on the spot, but now reserving in advance is a good idea — tickets were sold out for this past weekend days ahead.  Admission is $11, and hours are 2-6pm Tuesday ..read more

A view of the Wharf from the Jitney   1. The Jitney is running again on weekends at the Wharf!  In case you’re not familiar, this is one of my favorite KFDC tips to share:  The small boat is essentially a free taxi between East Potomac Park and The Wharf.  Parking can be difficult and expensive in the Southwest Waterfront area, but this service lets you park at East Potomac, where there is lots of free parking, then ferry over to the Wharf.  Not only do you avoid the hassle and cost of finding a spot for your car, you get to enjoy a fun, little cruise! It runs 12-6pm ..read more
