Last weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting friends from home in Washington, D.C. It may not be a metropolis in the way New York or London may be, but I still think D.C. makes for a lovely capital in its own right. I was there for little more than a day, but it was still a great trip. On Friday evening, I took a bus from New York and arrived in Washington kind of late. My friends and I just ended up grabbing burgers and hanging out around the American University area.
Saturday was an absolutely gorgeous fall day, perfect for exploring the city. Our first stop was Eastern Market, which includes a farmers’ market and a flea market. Not too many things in my budget caught my eye, but I did buy some pretty black pearl studs.
After spending a couple hours there, we grabbed a quick lunch at Seventh Hill. I admit, I did decide to eat there because they were playing the UMiami-Clemson game, but luckily our sandwiches were delicious!
Then we headed out towards the Capitol, because I had never seen many of the buildings in that area. I love the architecture in D.C.
After our busy afternoon, we headed back to the AU campus (where my friends go to school and I was staying) until dinner. Then we hit up the Cheesecake Factory for some four cheese pasta and red velvet cake. Then we continued our touristy adventures by going to see some more monuments at night.
Is D.C. gorgeous or what? I think it’s a wonderful city. Have you guys ever been there? What’s your favorite thing about it?
