Where to go in Dc, MD, VA or the DMV, as what we call it around here?
National harbor (Maryland)
A very nice place to visit when in the DMV as they have a lot to offer. Everything in just one place! They have best hotels, restaurant, shopping places and other fun activities for everybody. You don’t need to drive far! I am just so lucky to be living just a few miles away from this place. If you are a fitness junkie and you do brisk walking, biking or running, this is connected to Old Town Alexandria via the Bridge! Gorgeous view of DC and the Potomac river along the way.
My Recommendations: (I only recommended the places I have tried that I like)
For Happy Hour:
McCormick and Schmick $$
Red Stone American bar and Grille $$
Places to stay:
Gaylord hotel ($$$)
Hampton Inn ($$)
It is just so gorgeous to visit this City as it has all the important places here in the United States. Of course it is the US capital that is why it is so special. We always get to visit this specially when we have visitors, we tour them here. Great tourist destination, specially this coming Spring for the CHERRY BLOSSOM FESTIVAL.
Visit all the monuments (District of Columbia)
House of Congress
I suggest use the hop on hop off bus to get to all these stations if you don’t wanna walk. They are all strategically placed and very easy to navigate. Another way to get around the city is use the train system, but not during the rush hour or use Uber to get around.
Places to eat:
Food trucks!! Need I say more? Inexpensive, fast and mostly good food on every corner of those tourist Spots plus the souvenir stores.
Coco Sala – The Best! $$
Capital Grille $$
Masa 14 $$
Old Town Alexandria (Virginia)
Another lovely place to visit and stroll around is this place specially at King street as they have a lot of boutiques, shops, restaurants and …. It feels like You’re in Europe when you walk around that area. They also have a tram where you can ride and really feel like a tourist. It is very easy to get around this area, everything is wlaking distance.
Zento Sushi ( Japanese) and Pines of Florence (Italian) is our go to restaurant, the best!!
I hope this was a very helpful post to all of you if you will visit this winter. These area are close to the river so letting you know it will be cold so dress appropriately and wear comfy shoes.
Here is an outfit idea for you when you visit in the winter.
