Save Place
Arlington, VA 22211, USA
Arlington is the second largest national cemetery in the U.S. but by far the most beautiful. You can see the Changing of the Guard ceremony every half-hour during the spring and summer months. A visit is a moving experience.

1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20500, USA
The most famous residence in D.C. has been occupied by every U.S. president except George Washington (President John Adams was the first, in 1801). Construction began in 1792, so it's the oldest federally occupied building in the city. Tours are...

The day I arrived in Washington, D.C., I had some time to go exploring. Given the overcast skies, this turned out to be a poor photography expedition. And so the day I left D.C., I got up extra early to catch the sunrise over the National Mall. It...

South entrance to the Smithsonian Institution Castle on the National Mall. It's a beautiful day!
Save Place

This iconic Washington restaurant and bar has moved several times since it began as a boarding house/tavern in 1856, but its present location, a block from the White House, speaks to its history. Presidents Grant, Johnson, Cleveland, McKinley,...

If you visit Georgetown, make time to stroll along the historic C&O Canal with a cup of coffee. Normally there is water in the canal and the boats float along. The cafe on the corner, Baked and Wired, is full of delicious treats, with cupcakes...

3001 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC 20008, USA
While in DC for a long weekend, I took the kids for a walk to the National Zoo. My 17-month-old son saw these statues of the chimpanzees, and he quickly ran up to offer them a drink saying, "Drink, Mommy!" Apparently they were thirsty too. DC is a...

Chef/owner Aaron Silverman's farmhouse restaurant, in the heart of Barracks Row, serves creative (and Michelin-starred) cooking inspired by his travels and culinary training in the American South, Mexico, the Mediterranean, and Southeast Asia....

Le Diplomate opened up not long ago on the 14th Street Corridor, which has seen an explosion in new restaurants in recent years. Although we have plenty of French restaurants in D.C., this is the first that is truly reminiscent of the French...

“It’s one of D.C.’s hippest spots right now. Look for rustic, comforting dishes; the wood-grilled chicken is spot-on. Don’t miss the funky orange wines the bar serves by the glass, either.” —Local food blogger...

Like many people these days, I need a cup of caffeine to get me going in the morning. Most mornings I’m a tea person, but every once in a while, I need a cup of coffee. Luckily for me, M.E. Swing is just a short two blocks away from my office....

A pleasant surprise while on a Stray Boots tour, the Carousel Bar at the Hotel Monteleone was a very welcomed break from rowdy Bourbon Street. Friendly wait staff will probably recommend the signature Sazerac or something just as potent. Stay and...

A city crammed with ambitious young staffers willing to work long hours in hopes of shaping the country, Washington is a place that works hard and plays hard. One of the newest additions to its burgeoning boutique hotel scene, the...
