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!
This self guided walking tour of NYC covers 4.6 miles and takes you through Tribeca, the Financial District, the South Street Seaport, and a smidge of Chinatown! You’ll see Tribeca, the waterfront, the 9/11 Memorial, the Statue of Liberty, Battery Park, Wall Street, and the little-known “Bloodiest Street in America,” complete with hidden underground tunnels. And because we’re literally never not eating, we also included brunch, dinner, drinks, and even dessert 😉
