5 Best Places in D.C.

The other day, I made the venture into D.C. I live so close, it's boarderline sad how little time I spend there. This summer however, I decided to make a change and made it into the American History Museum. It was great and I definitely want to write more about experiences in Washington. Here are the 5 things I think everyone should do in DC (for free!).

American History Museum | You must go and check out the imfamous Julia Child exhibit, where her kitchen is recreated. The museum really put into perspective how much has happened in the history of America and has an incredible displays of artifacts (including the shoes Judy Garland wore in The Wizard of Oz!) Make sure to get their early to avoid crowds- and even get street parking. 

WWII Memorial | Definitely worth checking out this memorial at night- it's absolutely beautiful as it's surrounded by fountains and in between the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial,.

M Street |
One of the best places and where I spent the most time in D.C. throughout high school. M Street is the major road along the Potomac River in Georgetown and has every store under the sun. 

Iwo Jima | Within walking distance of my neighborhood, it's one of the best places to go for fireworks on July 4th because of the view. A great place for picnics and paying respects to the incredible military that keeps this country free. 

Spy Museum | Ask anyone who has been to this museum and they will tell you this is a must go. Just do it and you'll thank me later. (Just keep in mind that this is one of the only museums in D.C. that you have to pay for.)
