Washington DC is a spectacular city, full of culture and much character so inspired by Eventbrite, I created a Fall Guide to Washington DC. If I had 24 hours in Washington DC my itinerary will include the following:
9:00am I’d start with a hearty breakfast at Poste located in the heart of the Penn Quarter and China town.
10:30am I’ll walk off my breakfast at the the Smithsonian museums close by.
12:00pm After walking around the museums I will take the metro over to Union Market where I’ll have lunch and browse the local food vendors.
1:30pm I’ll head over to Dolcezza for a hot chocolate or coffee to pick me up before heading over to one of my favorite DC vintage shops.
2:00pm Next I will meet a friend over at Nomad Yard to browse the new arrivals and shop for a vintage hat to keep me warm through the fall and winter months.
3:15pm After finding my ideal vintage hat, I’ll bike using Capital Bike Share to Eastern Market to check out the local clothing vendors and colorful murals.
5:30 pm For dinner I’ll go to Aqua al Due, which is the most authentic Italian food I’ve found in DC since moving back from Florence, Italy.
7:30 pm After a delightful meal with friends, we’ll bike over to The Kennedy Center to listen to a Musical or see a Ballet.
9:30pm Following the Kennedy center I’ll bike along the Potomac into Georgetown and have dessert some warm drinks at Kafe Leopolds.
10:30pm – 12 am To cap off my night, I will take a self-guided tour of the monuments on my city bike. I will start at The Lincoln Memorial and end at the Martin Luther King Memorial which will conclude my delightful 24 hours in DC!
