how to spend a weekend in washington, dc!

in honor of living in dc for four years i thought it might be fun to compile a list of some of my favorite things to see and eat in this great city! as this city continues to grow and expand my favorites change but here are a few of my go-to's sorted by neighborhood!

dupont circle has always been one of my favorite neighborhoods and i feel lucky to call it home. filled with cute shops, restaurants, and row houses this is the perfect neighborhood to explore.
