road trip day 34: washington, dc

Our weather luck ran out in Washington D.C. and we were greeted by grey skies and misting rain. We pulled on our rain jackets and braved the weather to head out and walk around the National Mall's monuments.  Our short stay in D.C. was a lot less exciting than I thought it would be. It might have been because this was our fourth big city in less than a week or the weather, but we couldn't have been less interested in touring around.  Before long we were freezing and wet and it was time to meet up with my friend for drinks in a cozy neighborhood of Washington D.C. (can't remember the neighborhood's name for the life of me).  What was really the most memorable part of visit was catching up my friend and seeing what life would be like to live in the nation's capital. (We also ate some killer late night gyros, so D.C. has that going for it too).

  2. So sorry that you didn't feel up to touring around DC! I went this time of year last year, but it was not nearly as wet. It's definitely one of my most favorite cities. The little neighbor hoods are nice though, I'm glad you found some enjoyment in the city!

    1. I definitely want to head back when the weather is warmer! There seems to be so much to do and see in the city! Glad you stopped by the blog!

  3. My city! Yes, you did get here for some nasty weather. Was the cozy neighbordhood Eastern Market, perhaps? My second guess would be Dupont Circle. Eastern Market is my favorite. Winter weather here is perfect for ducking in somewhere and getting a hot drink. The touristy stuff can wait. :)
