The Magnificent Courtyard in DC You Absolutely Must Visit

As Washingtonians, we try to stay away from massive tourist destinations. It’s difficult to do, of course since there are so many! However, even though The National Portrait Museum is one of the most popular Smithsonian museums on the Mall, you should go. And the reason isn’t the beautiful art. But it has to do with the most amazing courtyard in DC.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The Kogod Courtyard is located at the National Portrait Gallery at 8th and F Streets NW. It is open daily from 11:30-7pm.
