The weather is warmer, and the days are longer, summer has officially arrived and with it, CityCenterDC’s exciting seasonal offerings.
In addition to the best-in-class luxury shopping and dining available at CityCenterDC, the landmark, mixed-used development is also known for its eye-catching installations and experiences that transform downtown D.C. into a “must visit” destination for travelers and locals, alike.
If you plan to visit the most colorful and vibrant spots in the city, be sure to place Palmer Alley at the top of your list! This summer, translucent, neon material has been woven together to canopy the alley, allowing the sun to reflect through and cast colorful shadows on the alley below, making for an enchanting Kaleidoscope effect.
