While the formal affairs once put on by the historic town of Washington in Northern Virginia may be a thing of the past, the holiday traditions are not — especially at The Inn at Little Washington. When you pull into the small yet charming town, you’ll notice the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star inn immediately with its façade decked out in Christmas décor (think loads of fresh pine and red ribbon bows) and glowing lights. Usually there is a cooking demonstration around the holidays — in 2010 the Five-Star inn hosted Roland Mesnier, a former White House pastry chef. And though every year is different when it comes to special holiday events, you can expect a well-planned, charming activity such as the recent Easter bonnet contest.
