Washington, D.C. has always been at the top of my list when it comes to traveling and I finally made it! I figured I would write up a travel guide on Washington, D.C. on all of my favorite spots. It has always been a place I have wanted to visit. Since one of my good friends lives there I thought it would be nice to go visit her and check it out.
I feel like the time of year that I visited was perfect because seeing the changing of the seasons was probably one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen. There was also so much that I wanted to do and see here that I feel like I would have to go back to really see all the monuments and museums.
There are so many monuments and museums that all tourists have to see at least once which I’m sure you all know about; The Washington Monument, World War II Memorial, Abraham Lincoln Memorial, The White House & many more. I won’t be focusing as much on those.
My first day in town, my friend and I took bikes and rode around town. This was such a beautiful city and I feel like I really got to know it in a sense by riding bike around all of the main streets and around the monuments.
To start off this travel guide, I’ll be starting with some of my favorite restaurants as D.C. had some of the most delicious food! I was honestly not expecting the food to be so mind-blowing, but it was top of the charts!
This had to be one of my all-time favorite restaurant, I would hop on a flight right now just to have this steak again. This is definitely a MUST when visiting Washington, D.C.. I had the most delicious steak and mashed potatoes in my life. Truly an amazing dinner with such a great atmosphere.
Ok, this might be a little touristy and you might think it’s overrated, but the cupcakes really are as good as they seem! I’ve always loved the show DC Cupcakes so I had to go!
While wandering around town for a bit, I was in the mood for Italian and found this place while walking. This pasta was sooooo good, I can almost taste it just looking at the picture. The chicken was also delicious and not dry which is common with most dishes. I will say this was a pleasant surprise because I just found it while walking the streets, I’m convinced there is no bad food in DC.
Cucina Al Volo:
This restaurant was in the Union Market, which I could probably live in. They have so many different shops in there that it’s hard to choose, but Al Volo was definitely the right choice (not that I didn’t try five other spots of course). However, I got the Lamb Fusili which was amazing; you can really tell that the pasta was freshly made.
This was also an amazing restaurant that has a beautiful bar for drinks.
Here’s some other pictures I took on my trip! Let me know what you think and if you love D.C. too!
