Ahh … April is here and we can smell the sweet aroma of new blossoms in the air. This month was originally named for the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite. The name for the month of April originally came for Aprilis, which means to open. So, how appropriate that we are starting off the month with a new package experience ready for you to try: Escape to The District. You can also “open” yourself up to opera at the Bonnet House, laughter at Parker Playhouse, architectural history at the Stranahan House or art and fashion at NSU Art Museum. Try one or sample them all and open your mind and spirit to a new adventure at The District.
