Take the spouse, the kids, and the pets out for a break in the woods in rural Maryland. Visit a lake.

Lake Artemesia

Located in Prince George’s County, Lake Artemesia is named after local resident Artemesia N. Drefs, who donated 10 lots with natural ponds on them for use as open space. Today Lake Artemesia is 38 acres and sits inside a public park. The area is popular among bird-watchers and fishermen. Aquatic gardens, biking and hiking trails are also found in the park. The quaint small town of Berwyn Heights where Lake Artemesia is located has just 3,000 residents (as of 2010), but it is only five miles from the larger city of Silver Spring and seven miles from the multitude of tourist activities in Washington, D.C. Hotels nearby include the Courtyard Silver Spring Downtown and the Marriott Greenbelt, about a mile and a half from Berwyn Heights.

DUMMY Event – Picnic in Dupont

Getting Some Fresh Air

Now that we're in another phase of reopening, people are getting out more and more. We're finally able to gather in small groups and grab a meal at one of our favorite restaurants. If you're looking for something unique to do while avoiding the crowds that combines your favorite restaurant; why not a picnic? There are plenty of parks in the Dupont Circle area and even more within a short walking distance of The Hepburn that you can take advantage of.

The following Dupont Circle restaurants are offering picnic baskets filled with yummy provisions for you to safely pick-up and go.

Mintwood Place

Mintwood Place offers their picnic baskets on the weekends from noon to 5:00 pm. The baskets include shredded chicken sandwiches, cheese, and cookies. This basket which includes enough for two is $40

The Imperial

For a more sophisticated picnic basket, The Imperial should be your go-to. For only $22, they provide you with crudites, hummus and will throw in some surprises that may include smoked salmon.

Neighborhood Provisions

This picnic basket option offerings choices from multiple different restaurants; one being Iron Gate in Dupont Circle. The "Best. Picnic. Ever." option includes the cheese board from Iron Gate along with a charcuterie board, fruit and challah bread. This option costs $85.

While dining is slowly getting back to normal, it's a great time to try out different ways of enjoying your favorite Dupont Circle foods.
