It was exciting to see the sleds come out of the wood work last week when the Washington, DC area was dusted with a few inches of snow. School was cancelled, the temperatures took a major dip and the streets were filled with children, parents and sleds. What could be more fun than an afternoon playing on a favorite sledding hill with dogs, family and good friends?

Whether the sled is a flexible flyer, plastic toboggan, saucer or cafeteria tray memories can be found on numerous favorite sledding hills in and around the finest Washington DC real estate. Top 10+ Favorite Sledding Hills
