Is anybody else excited at the mere thought of warmer weather? Snow might still be threatening the DC area, but we’re looking forward to all of the fun things to do this month that mean getting out of the house and even occasionally enjoying some of the countryside. Here are our top five events around the area in March.
Ballroom Dance Class | Salamander Resort
Grab a partner and head to Middleburg to dance the night away at Salamander Resort. Enjoy learning various ballroom dance styles step-by-step.
Astronomy for Everyone | Sky Meadows State Park
Enjoy an evening of space exploration with a “Junior Astronomer” program, hear about the importance of dark skies and light conservation, then join volunteer Ambassadors of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab for a presentation on the latest in the United States’ space research. Afterward, get oriented to the celestial skies with a brief sky tour, then take advantage of Sky Meadows’ dark skies by looking at deep space objects through telescopes provided.
