Ice Skating at the Sculpture Garden

In summer, the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden is a great place to stroll and dip your toes in the fountain. This time of year, that fountain is converted to a sizable ice rink, right in the middle of D.C. A two-hour session is just $8.00, so hop on the Metro, rent some skates, and glide (or wobble) your way around this fantastic rink.
