Searching for ways to give back this holiday season? We’ve got two great local drives for you along Route 1!

Hopping on the Metro with the kids and heading in to explore DC is one of the great benefits to living along the Route 1 Corridor. We recently did just so on a quest to check out “Saturday Morning at the National,” a live theatre series of free and interactive family programs at the National Theatre. Another great, indoor fun option for Route 1 Kids – with The Nutcracker coming up on Saturday, December 14th and ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas on Saturday, December 21st.
