September may herald the official end of summer with its Labor Day weekend tradition and “back to school” summoning, but at The District, September signals the start of another exciting month and new cultural season for arts & entertainment. For those clinging on to the last vestiges of summer, there are hotel getaways and a tour available at unbelievable summer rates. There is also much to discover this month with Smithsonian magazine’s Museum Day Live, Latin American Art lecture, birding classes and the eternal and iconic Mr. Tony Bennett. All of this and so much more are waiting at The District in September — the perfect way to ease out of summer and into the throes of an exciting fall schedule.
