Hidden Gems in the DC Area

Washingtonian.com’s 61 Hidden Gems highlights fun places to visit—gorgeous gardens, interesting behind-the-scenes tours, quirky museums, a new skateboard park, and more.  Some of our favorites are:

1. Spend the night in a lockhouse along the C&O Canal. Completed in 1850, the 184-mile canal was once lined with 57 small houses where lock keepers and their families lived. Prices range from $70 to $150 per night. canaltrust.org

2. Dig for buried treasure at Gunston Hall, George Mason’s 18th-century estate in Fairfax County. The field season goes from April to December; in the winter, volunteers can work in the lab, dating and categorizing unearthed objects.  703-550-9220;gunstonhall.org.

Churchill has short-term corporate housing available throughout Washington D.C. and  Nationwide. Please contact us at 866-255-0593 for more information.
