Things to Do

Hostelling International-Washington, DC’s Winter Adventure Getaway is full of new and fun adventures and experiences. You can take in the sights on a walk through celebrated monuments (Washington, Lincoln, and Jefferson, just to name a few), experience iconic buildings (like The Capitol and The White House), and learn about the world around you at the incomparable Smithsonian Institution’s art, science, and history museums – and the National Zoo! In your free time, shop in swanky Georgetown, go ice skating near The National Mall, or grab an authentic meal in Chinatown.
