Editor’s Itin­er­ary

Where Washington - - CONTENTS -

An in­sider view of what’s es­sen­tial in Wash­ing­ton, D.C.

Windswept skies above the memo­ri­als and rosy-cheeked folks sport­ing warm woolen mit­tens. These are some of the signs of Fe­bru­ary in the na­tion’s cap­i­tal. The in­vig­o­rat­ing chill in the air makes us want to move, or more pre­cisely to glide, around one of our charm­ing out­door skat­ing rinks (page 4). And when it’s time to warm up, there are in­door at­trac­tions aplenty. For Black His­tory Month, we sur­vey sites that honor the ex­pe­ri­ences of African Amer­i­cans (page 6), in­clud­ing the new—and ex­tremely pop­u­lar—Smith­so­nian mu­seum. ( Visit the web­site, nmaahc.si.edu, at 6:30 a.m. for same-day, timed-en­try passes.) If you’re feel­ing lucky, head to the new MGM Na­tional Har­bor for a bit of Ve­gas-style gam­bling and much more (page 8). Then un­wind with an ex­quis­ite hand-crafted cock­tail (page 9). Even if you have only lim­ited time, we can show you how to make the most of it at a top D.C. des­ti­na­tion.
