Around Town: Glen Echo Park

Should you find yourself south of Baltimore in the DC area, consider visiting Glen Echo Park. Only 6.5 miles and a 15-minute drive along the Potomac River from Georgetown, it is a popular amusement park for families with kids (it has a 1921 Dentzel carousel) and provides an opportunity for artists and craftsters to pursuits creative activities.

Glen Echo Park is home to resident artists and arts organizations and if you would like to take up painting, kilnformed glass, blown glass, pottery, photography (or restoring your old photos) and hundreds of other classes/workshops held all-year round, check the schedule here.

I grew up close to Glen Echo and I believe I may have taken my very first art lesson there :) Thanks for sharing!

They also offer dancing at the Spanish Ballroom on the weekends. Loads of fun!
