    It's an iconic moment in cinematic history: Doe-eyed Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, effortlessly clad in a turban and ballet flats, sings the dreamiest rendition of "Moon River" on her fire escape. We admit that Breakfast at Tiffany's singlehandedly spawned our love affair with having that secret little outdoor spot to, well, escape — and maybe play the ukelele, too.

    Here in D.C., the open-air oasis of choice is the front stoop. Sure, we may not have New York's overabundance of industrially inspired fire escapes, or L.A.'s proliferation of sunny patios, but we happen to think our stoops (or porches, depending on the size—and where you're from) have their own brand of unfussy, laid-back charm. They're inviting, cheerful, and accessible, and you can personalize them with everything from snazzy cushions and pretty candleholders to potted plants and fancy lighting. So, whip out the ukulele, 'cause we've got everything you need to dine, drink, and chill al fresco, all summer long. Bring on stoop season!
