The Sculpture Garden
One of Washington DC’s best little secret, especially during the hot summer, is the Sculpture Gardens. If you have the family out exploring “The Mall” area you need to stop by and explore the Sculpture Gardens. The abstract sculptures that make up this garden are entertaining and fascinating as it is all set in a very European setting with gardens and long path ways. And in the middle of everything there is a huge fountain that you are able to cool off by putting your feet in. The whole scene looks like it comes directly from Paris. There is a little bistro café with beautiful outdoor seating and it is a tossup if the fountain or all of the sculptures are the main attraction!
This is a great place to come and bring the children to enjoy looking at larger than life pieces of art as well as letting them enjoy splashing around in the fountain. The Sculpture Garden is hidden behind gates and it is almost as if nothing was there until you go in. It is located down the street from the Natural History Museum. It is hard to bring children to an art museum, so this is the perfect setting because it is outside where they can run around, the art is so big and exciting that it intrigues even a toddler and if all else fails; the fountain is a great place for them to splash around and cool off. On top of the good entertainment value for children it is so spread out and enclosed that it makes a very relaxing setting for someone opening up a book or getting a coffee.
