If you’re planning a trip to Beantown, there’s a few things you should know about locals: most of them don’t say chowdah, almost all of them run on Dunkin’ Donuts, and none of them approved of the branding shift to Dunkin’. I learned all of this and more from our Guest Poster, a Boston local with insider knowledge who created the ultimate 3-day Boston weekend itinerary!
Tapas. Museums. Otherwordly cathedrals. Avant garde art. Gothic architecture. Wine. … Did we mention the tapas? Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities in Spain and the center of Catalan history and culture.

But don’t worry: for this walking tour of Barcelona, we’ve tapped 3 Barcelona experts to create the perfect self-guided tour, complete with insider tips, photo ops, and tons of history and culture (and food).
Two things usually come to mind when people think of Washington DC: 8th grade field trips and government buildings. Anyway, those are the two things that came to our guest poster’s mind when she decided to move to the United States capital for a new job. Having spent most of her childhood in nearby Virginia, her idea of Washington DC was that it was only museums, monuments, and old guys in neckties walking briskly into government offices. Spending over a year here has turned that perception upside down. Washington DC is buzzing with nightlife, street festivals, crazy psychedelic art exhibits, and more. And yes, it’s literally full of young professionals who are ambitious, passionate, and energetic. Here’s how to discover the city like a local – everything you need to know for your trip to Washington DC!
