The clock is ticking on our summer fun!

Just 2 weeks to go until the kids go back to school and the adults go back to our regular schedules. But before that happens, there’s actually a lot going on around the area for some late summer fun.

You’ve got 3 weeks left at the pool, but if you’re looking for something else to do, try one of these things this week:

  • Restaurant Week all over D.C. and NoVA! Find a full list of restaurant participants here. Some of my favorites include Ambar, Ford’s Fish Shack, Lyon Hall and TenPenh
  • Arlington County Fair: August 14-18, see the full schedule here. Pretend you’re reliving ViVa Vienna or McLean Day!
  • Kids on the Green: 10 a.m. at the Town Green, kids performers
  • Chillin’ on Church: 6:30 p.m. on the Town Green with a live band, food trucks, activities for kids and beer truck!
  • Kids Obstacle Course at McLean Central Park: Saturday, August 17 at 9:30 a.m. Buy $10 tickets here. The Vienna Kids Adventure Race was last weekend and so much fun! If you’ve never done this, I highly recommend for the under 10 crowd.
  • Cirque du Soleil: Volta Under The Big Top; Definitely not too dark for the whole family but a great excuse for a date night!

Also I’d love some reader input! If you have a favorite getaway for a day, drop it in the comments below.

Do you like going to Sandy Point for a beach day? Know a better spot? Let me know!
