Slip-Sliding Away

Who wants to go skating in the National Gallery of Art’s sculpture garden? We do! The temporary rink was installed in mid-November and will stay open well into March (weather permitting, of course). But if the art-loving, camel-spinning crowds get to be too much, D.C. offers two other seasonal skating rinks: the Canal Park Ice Rink in the southeastern part of the Hill and the Washington Harbour Ice Rink in Georgetown.
