Here are some more pictures and moments from the trip!
1 & 2: We had all of our dinners on Campbell Ave. in Arlington, VA. There is a row of great restaurants there. We had some farm to table realness at Copperwood Tavern and some killer margaritas at Guapo’s.
3: Campbell Ave. was a great hang during the day too, we went to Peete’s Coffee and Tea in the morning to read each day.
4. The Capital building. We didn’t go in, but we walked by and I took a quick picture. This one is nice because the trees are blocking the gross scaffolding.
5. The National Portrait Gallery sits right at the beginning of DC’s Chinatown, which is home to cool shops and a lot of great happy hour options!
6. The docents are the true heroes of DC. Chuck was my guide at the Library of Congress. And I say he was mine because we became BFFs once he found out I was an actual librarian!
Also, I wanted to give a shout out to our hotel, Best Western Pentagon. It was cheap, cozy and clean, it had free wifi, parking, and breakfast. And it had Bravo, which is a must. And the breakfast was a real breakfast too! There was also a free shuttle that took us to and from the Metro. So if you go to DC, I recommend it!
