Where’s the Closest Beach? Downtown DC!

You might have been hearing about DC’s new and temporary beach. The National Building Museum and a firm called Snarkitecture have teamed up to install a 10,000 sq ft artificial ocean with 750,000 translucent balls. The beach comes with chairs, paddleball, a snack bar, and a vast ball pit but sunscreen is not required.

While there is a fee for entry, the NBM is holding Ward Days at the Beach with free entry for residents. The Ward 5 Day at the Beach is on August 11th from 9 am to 11 am. Wards are determined by zip code so you need to take a valid form of identification to benefit from the free entry on August 11th. Check in at the admissions desk for a wristband to permit free entry.
