The city is brimming with activity on the first weekend back from holiday break. Enjoy a winter celebration in Nationals Park, performing arts in Arlington, and nature discovery at the National Museum of Natural History.

DC's NBA franchise, the Washington Wizards, hosts its annual kids day this weekend and wannabe chefs can learn a thing or two about making pizza in Sterling, Va.
