fall weekend in dc & what to do in dc

I spent the weekend in DC with my husband and we got our steps in exploring Georgetown and walking around to different museums. It was a nice change of pace and I was surprised that the gardens in the Smithsonian were still blooming. Seeing the trees change colors and to be able to bask in the sun on a fall day was the highlight of my trip. Fall is just the best time of the year! We didn't have an itinerary except for a brunch reservation at Le Diplomate, but time passed by quickly. I had planned for us to go see the Yayoi Kasuma exhibit at Hirshhorn, but the earliest ticket time was 3:30pm when we arrived at 10am. Sadly we had already made plans so we decided to pass on the opportunity. There was still so much to do and we were able to make most of our time in DC.

Here are some places I recommend:


Sights & Locations
National Portrait Gallery
Hirshhorn Museum
Spanish Steps
The Wharf
Walk around to the different memorials such as Jefferson and Lincoln Memorial
Dupont Circle Farmers Market
U Street for murals, eats, coffee at Wydown, and shopping
Georgetown is a charming area with shops, food, and waterfront where you can canoe

La Colombe (Blagden Alley location is my favorite)

Ever since moving to the countryside it's been awhile since I've been into DC, but always a treat when I do go. It's nice to see familiar shops still in business and also new small businesses come into the city. I hope everyone is staying warm and healthy before the upcoming holidays!

Love, Sharon
