Washington, D.C.
Along the historic C&O Canal, start your morning off with a visit to Baked and Wired, a husband-and-wife café that offers a cozy atmosphere adorned with work by local artists. Head to the left counter for muffins and breads (the "baked" side) and then to the right for coffee (the "wired" side). Venture outside, and you're not far from Georgetown—or Waterfront Park, with a scenic path running along the natural curve of the river. It’s perfect for strolling and is popular with joggers and bicyclists heading to the connecting Capital Crescent Trail.
