    Georgetown Things to Do

    Georgetown University was founded in 1789 and is America's oldest Roman Catholic University. It is said that during the Civil War, Georgetown students and instructors joined the Union Army while nearby George Washington University students and faculty joined the Confederacy. No wonder I like Georgetown better... not to mention my namesake...

    Georgetown Restaurants

    The Blue Duck Tavern has some of the best desserts in the area; in particular their apple pie and sugar cookies.

The apple pie here is famous and is so...

    Cleveland Park Warnings and Dangers

    There were some places to park a car very close to the cathedral edifice but they were decorated with those signs with a red mysterious writing: "tow away" and below "if towed..." and very expensive phone number. Hmm... "tow away" is a basic English phrase to learn for a foreign driver.As I had already known it I started to drive in my usual in...

    Cleveland Park Shopping

    This charming shop is located in the Herb Cottage which was completed as the temporary baptistry of Washington National Cathedral in 1904, several years before the Cathedral itself was begun. Then "the Old Baptistry" served in the beginning as a small shop for plants and seeds under the auspices of the All Hallows Guild and eventually by 1958 the...

  • Caracal at the National Zoo

    National Zoological Park Things to Do

    The Caracal is an African lynx (also known as desert lynx) mostly originating from North Africa and the Arabian peninsula. Though they are part of the Great Cats exhibit they are housed in the small mammals house. They are small, but you can tell they are feline, and dangerous when they open their mouth and show their teeth. The thing you notice...

  • Getting to the Zoo on public transport

    National Zoological Park Transportation

    Perhaps it is because I am a suburbanite, but taking a car into DC is definitely discouraged due to the difficulties of parking. By far the easiest way to get to the Zoo is with the Metro. It is on the RED LINE- Woodley Park/Zoo stop. It is about a 15 minute walk (1/3 of a mile) up a slight incline from there, going north. Just follow the crowds,...

  • Places to eat near the Zoo

    National Zoological Park Restaurants

    There are several concession stands within the zoo grounds where you can stop to have something to eat and drink. If you choose to eat in the Zoo itself it will not be cheap, lets put it that way.I would instead suggest that you eat before or after leaving the zoo. There are plenty of reasonably priced eateries near the Woodley Park and Cleaveland...

    Anacostia Things to Do

    Forgive me for doing a "drive by" of a national monument with my camera. I will be back when I'm with a few others to actually explore the place, but by yourself in Anacostia is not where you want to be unless you want to see a real drive by. The historic site was the home Frederick Douglass, purchased in 1877, and named Cedar Hill. Frederick...
