Presidents Day Weekend Things to Do in Washington, DC: Dinos, Theater, Disney on Ice

It's Presidents Day weekend in Washington, DC, and who could fault kids for their enthusiasm. Ahead of a week off from school, families in DC have three days of great things to do, including nature and Star Wars funchildren's theater, library learning, and more.

Little historians can celebrate the nation's first president at his home in Mount Vernon and enjoy a FREE day of presidential fun at the National Portrait Gallery toddler book club, How cool is that?
