Last week Taras had to go to DC for work and I decided to tag along. Over the past few years, DC has become one of our favorite cities to visit, especially around March and April when they are getting real spring weather while we're still dealing with snow. DC has great restaurants and there's a lot to do and see, with all the city's monuments, memorials, and Smithsonian Museums. And, well, Georgetown might be one of my favorite places ever - I can't get enough of those charming houses along the neighborhood's side streets.
I wandered around the National Mall area and was hoping to spend a chunk of the day at some of the museums - until I realized everything was overrun with school groups. I cut my visit to the Museum of Natural History short because I could hardly maneuver through all the kiddos! I decided to slowly make my way over to Georgetown, where I treated myself to a seriously good cupcake at baked & wired after a looong day of walking. We also met up with a friend for drinks at Galaxy Hut and had two awesome dinners, one at Montmarte and the other at 2Amys.
If you have any favorite spots in DC, I'd love to hear about them!
