24 Hours in Washington DC

Lincoln Memorial

Friday: We started to lose it again with the construction noise at our apartment so we decided to have another mini escape this time to Washington, DC. It happened to be peak Cherry Blossom time so this made it really perfect. We got in a Zip Car and drove straight to the hotel (College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Hyatsville, MD). We arrived close to 2am so we headed straight to our comfy bed and crashed.

Saturday: We had breakfast at The Common restaurant at the Marriott hotel then headed to The National Mall. It was a surprisingly hot day, so we ducked into the National Museum of Natural History to scope out some Mummies, the Hope Diamond, and other wonders. We paid the extra dough to go in the Butterfly Atrium. I was pretty skeptical that it would be worth it, but it filled me with wonder and was really a treat.

Next we walked over to the reflecting pool and the Lincoln Memorial, by then we were ready for some food. W hopped in a cab and hit up Founding Farmers which was totally awesome. Then we needed to get some work done so it was back to The Marriott for the evening.

Sunday: No exciting DC things to report since we stayed in the Marriott all day getting work done. But we did make a stop at The Common in the hotel before hitting the road back to NYC.
