Last night I returned from my trip to Washington DC, which was short but productive. I have been to our nation’s capital at least 10 times (half for business and half for pleasure) and am always pleasantly surprised by my time there. I didn’t bring my SLR with me, but was able to grab a few shots with my iPhone. (However, I did borrow the first photo from Flickr Creative Commons).
So here it is…a list of the top 4 reasons I love Washington D.C.
- The History.
The Lincoln Memorial is my favorite stop in D.C. I get chills staring up at him and thinking about all he accomplished in his lifetime. The great thing about this city is that everywhere you go, there’s a piece of history waiting to be uncovered.
- The View
Whether it’s from your car or you hotel room, there’s so much to look at in DC. People, lights, monuments, or in this case the sunset. This photo was taken from my hotel room right as the sun went down. (Sorry for the blur…the iPhone camera doesn’t do well in the dark!).
- The Food
Oh man. The food. So many choices, so little time. This is a photo of an Ethiopian dinner I had one night at Dukem on U Street. If you have never tried Ethiopian food, I highly recommend it.
- The Accidental Discovery.
As I mentioned in a post earlier this week, we stumbled upon a divine chocolate shop while walking the streets. There are so many little shops throughout D.C., it’s hard not to accidentally discover something great.
What about you? Have you ever been to Washington D.C.?
