Local Guide

You’ve hit up the Mall and all the great museums, so now what? Exploring one of the countless historical neighborhoods is always a good bet (try Georgetown, DuPont Circle or Woodley Park – home of the National Zoo). Or if you want to stay in the heart of DC, we’ve got a few ideas.

Grub, American Style!

Founding Farmers keeps the decor functional with its famous pickled vegetables – image courtesy of dc.curbed.com

Classic American cuisine using fresh, local, farm-to-table ingredients? SIGN US UP! Check out Founding Farmers in Foggy Bottom, owned by actual American family farmers. Much of the mouthwatering menu changes daily depending on the crops available. And try a cocktail made with their own locally-produced Founding Farmers Rye or Farm Gin!

Take a moment to breathe

Enjoy the view from the city’s highest point at Washington National Cathedral and don't forget to look for the Gargoyles

Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city in one of these serene D.C. spots. The Washington National Cathedral has a beautiful observation area on the 7th floor, and the light through the stained glass windows is spectacular. (Tip: keep an eye out for Darth Vader on the Northwest Tower!) Lastly, sit and ponder our ever-changing world with one of the founding fathers at the Lincoln Memorial.

What We Love

DC has some of the most amazing museums around, so put on your walking shoes and get ready to soak up the best of American history and culture.


Pick & choose your favorite museums in DC – you could spend hours in The National Gallery of Art its Sculpture Garden alone…

Time to see your tax dollars at work with a free tour! The National Gallery of Art and the Smithsonian Museums are our top museum picks, and be sure to visit both the White House and U.S. Capitol Building to see where all the big decisions are made. If “no charge” works within your budget, head to the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage for a free performance every night at 6PM.

Far from the “Norm”
