A note from the CEO:

It's August and about half the population of any city is out of town, somewhere else: at the beach, in the mountains, trekking, hiking, biking, golfing, building sand castles with your kids or just hanging out. We thought a 'beach read' would be better suited for our August edition. 

ENJOY the rest of the summer!

Indoor Beach at National Building Museum in D.C. Draws Thousands

Uniqua Quillins, NBC News

You can spend a day at this beach without getting sand in your shoes -- or even getting wet.

The stately National Building Museum in Washington has opened a 10,000-square-foot indoor beach this summer made entirely of recyclable plastic balls -- almost a million of them.

"The little ones, the adults are going in and out. It's fun. This is beautiful," said Maureen Kendall, who was visiting from Boston on a recent day with her granddaughter, Kaylee Kendall-Beaden.

They were visiting a relative in Washington and heard about it on Snapchat.

"It's nicer because my grandmother can bring her walker on here," Kaylee said.

The installation opened July 4 in the museum's Great Hall. Thousands of people have visited, including many who probably had never head of the museum before, said Emma Filar, a spokeswoman.

An architecture firm called Snarkitecture built the indoor beach. Ben Porto, a senior associate at the firm, said that while Washington is a popular place to visit during the summer, it doesn't have a shore.
