Best Things to Do in DC in January with Kids
From New Year's Day to MLK weekend and beyond, January can be a great time for indoor and outdoor activities. Don’t miss our favorite kid-friendly events and activities in DC this month.
For outdoor fun, go on a Wild Child Hike or learn to cook over a fire at the Klondike Campfire Cookouts. Indoors, there are lots of great theater performances this month for all ages, including Balloonacy in Bethesda and the new musical Show Way at the Kennedy Center. And there are plenty of ways to honor Martin Luther King, Jr., from cleaning up the Mount Vernon Trail in Alexandria to visiting the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in DC.
We’re adding more events to our family activity calendar every day, so don’t forget to check it frequently.
