Nov 17, 2017
Need a break between holiday cooking and shopping? Whether you’d prefer to cozy up inside or to get outside for fresh air and scenery , treat yourself to some of these end-of-year activities at Wolf Trap. Oh, and feel free to bring your friends and family along!
Take a Hike
Disconnect from the daily grind and connect with nature. Beyond the Filene Center stage lie 117 acres of National Park land just waiting to be explored. Hiking is a great activity to spend time with your friends and family. If you’re with little ones, this is an excellent way to nurture their love for nature and being outdoors. Learn more about hiking at the park and First Sunday Wolf Trap Hike: Walk and Learn.
