Let me show you around Dc, shall I?
My sister moved to Richmond about 2 years ago and I hadn’t had time to visit until now. We decided to spend the weekend in DC before heading to Richmond.
We stayed the Marriot Chrystal City. It’s a perfect location to see plenty of the city. Just outside is a metro station and it only takes about 10-15 minutes to head into Washington.
We started out early on Saturday morning with a stroll through the Eastern Market Flea market followed by breakfast. There is lots of art, jewelry and clothing for sale. We checked out the farmer’s market as well with plenty of artisan produce before heading for breakfast.
After breakfast it was time to check out The Mall. We started at Capitol Hill and the botanical gardens.
Walked further towards the White House, passing the Washington Monument,
If you have half a day t spare, make sure to check out some of the brilliant museums. I loved the National Museum for Natural History!
Of course we had to visit the Lincoln Memorial which is on the western end of the mall. Truly magnificent!
DC is a fantastic place to visit! Lots of culture, history, shopping and some great restaurants & bars as well! Have you been?
