It might have been a mostly mild winter so far, but when cold weather kicks in, it can be hard to find the motivation to leave the warm comfort of home. Fortunately for BeechTree residents, Prince George’s County is home to a wide number of exciting destinations and fun indoor events — just the motivation you need to get out and enjoy time together.
Dine in Style at National Harbor
With more than 40 dining options to choose from, ranging from high-end steakhouses to quaint coffee shops, you’ll find whatever cuisine you’re looking for to fill your craving at National Harbor. Hard to choose from all the options? Pour a glass and get artistic at Muse Paintbar or go for dinner and a show at Bobby McKee’s Dueling Piano Bar.
Learn About the First Flights at College Park Aviation Museum
This state-of-the-art, 27,000-square-foot museum is an affiliate of the Smithsonian and located on the grounds of the oldest continuously operating airport in the world! Bring the kids to marvel over historic airplanes and learn about the evolution of aircraft throughout the 20th century. Visitors can also enjoy watching planes take off and land up close and personal — since the airport’s runway is located just outside the museum.
Shop ‘Til You Drop at Tanger Outlets
Post-holiday winter sales are in full effect at National Harbor’s Tanger Outlets. Over 80 outlet stores feature some of the hottest brands ranging from popular sports apparel to high-end fashion — Nike to Polo Ralph Lauren and everything in between.
You might be outdoors between stores, but there are plenty of quick eats and concessions to help you stay warm. Plus, if the weather turns for the worse, you won’t have to look far for a new scarf, gloves or jacket.
Shoot for the Stars at NASA Goddard Visitor Center
Showcasing the very best of NASA’s work in earth science, astrophysics, planetary science and more, the Goddard Visitor Center features numerous exhibits and programs to be explored and enjoyed by visitors of all ages. Bring the whole family to enjoy the exciting and informative ongoing exhibits, or stop by for one of the regular events.
Hit the Lanes at Bowlero in College Park
For those in the know, an afternoon at the lanes is always a good time. For those who think bowling has become outdated, you need to visit Bowlero in College Park. These are the hippest lanes in town and they feature a full bar and restaurant along with a classic arcade and lounge area. Check out their schedule for daily specials, blackout bowling and league play.
And there’s still so much more to see near BeechTree! Be sure to check out the county’s calendar of events for the latest news and activities to enjoy this winter and throughout the year
