The Little Known DC Nature Center That Will Bring Out The Explorer In You

One of the best things about DC is that it’s not hard to get to nature. We are a city with arts, culture, museums and easy access to just about anywhere. But whenever anyone in DC gets the urge to explore nature, they have options just a few minutes away. If you want to avoid the crowds of Rock Creek Park and avoid an hour drive to one of the great hiking spots, we have a perfect spot for you. Long Branch Nature Center is a beautiful nature center that is just 20 minutes outside of 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/
