washington d.c.

Back in early October, Kurt, Erik, Silvia, and I took a quick weekend trip down to Washington D.C for a football game. It was the weekend before Kurt and I left for Italy, so we probably should have packing, but Kurt had been looking forward to watching Ohio State take on Maryland ever since he heard they were joining the Big Ten a couple years ago. You only live once! Packing can wait! While the boys went to the game, Silvia and I did some site seeing around D.C.

We saw the Capitol Building...



...toured around the Botanic Garden...

...used D.C.'s bike share to ride along the Mall...

...saw the Washington Monument...



...the WWII monument...


...the Lincoln Memorial...

...stopped for a bite at We the Pizza...

...saw a few exhibits at the Hirshorn Museum...

...and breezed through the Air and Space Museum just as it was closing.

The DC metro is so moody and clean in comparison to NYC.

We stayed at an awesome Airbnb in Columbia Heights which was convenient to Maryland's campus as well as central DC. The neighborhood was great and we found some great bars and restaurants nearby--Kangaroo Boxing Club for meat-heavy dishes, The Coupe for tasty brunch, and Meridian Pint for football watching on Saturday night and again for a quick breakfast before hitting the road on Sunday.

Thanks D.C.! See you next time!

  1. Yea and I'm now ready to give Maryland back to the ACC :-)

    I have nothing to report from College Park other than they modeled the campus after a suburban office park. Oh, and Ohio State won easily!
