Postcards From Washington DC

A trip to the capital with good friends

Washington DC has quickly become a favorite city of mine to visit these last few years. Thanks to my BFF and business partner, Poor Little It Girl, moving there a few years ago and my previous job at Alternative taking me there for work trips, it’s become a great spot to visit and explore. For this recent trip to the capital, I headed up with blogger pal Kristin of Living In Color Print. She’s never been and we were all heading to Duck, North Carolina for another round of #BloggersDoTravel and the only sensible way to get there was to fly to DC and drive the 5 hours down. We decided to make a weekend out of it and I’m so glad we did. 

A few fun things to did in Washington DC besides the monuments, are lots of great restaurants. Some spots that you’ll see in the slideshow as you click through are visits to great restaurants like Founding Farmers and Fig & Olive.  This was by far my most food focused visit to the city and we also visited (not pictured) Oyamel which was one of the best Mexican restaurants I’ve ever been to.  Their table side guacamole was divine and their margaritas are topped with a salt foam (genius!). We hit up Ghibellina, Cork Wine Bar and also Cava Grill. Cava has been on my to eat list for forever. Cathy goes often and it’s basically a mediterranean Chipotle and is the best food ever. May have been my favorite meal of the whole trip it’s that good. We didn’t do a ton of sight seeing as the weather was gross most of the time, but we of course stopped by the White House and Lincoln Memorial.

    Food focused trips are always so fun, especially when the food turns out as good as you’d hoped it would be!
    Thanks for sharing!

    Very cool post. Just an FYI…anyone can go into the White House. Reach out to your Representative or Senator 6 weeks before your next trip to DC to request a tour of the inside. In addition, you can also get a tour of the Capitol Building. Library of Congress, Washington Monument, and more! 🙂
