    Georgetown Restaurants

    Whenever we stay at the Park Hyatt in Geoirgetown we come here for breakfast. Since our first meal here we have been hooked. The restaurant prides itself on locally grown and provided food; using the most natural of ingredients. The food here is the highest quality and incredibly delicious. Currently this is my favorite breakfast I’ve ever had in...

    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...

    Cleveland Park Things to Do

    The most impressive part of the North Elevation of the National Cathedral is a rose window put on the end of the northern transept.

    Anacostia Things to Do

    River East -- those areas of Washington DC that are located East of the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers -- are seldom visited by tourists. Many people who are unfamiliar with the city's geography consider the entire area east of the rivers, Anacostia, but there are actually about 30 neighborhoods here, with the largest being Anacostia, Capitol...

    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...

  • 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...

  • Take something to drink

    National Zoological Park What to Pack

    There are some concession stands throughout the Zoo grounds but they are very expensive! Best way to deal with that problem is simply put a few bottles of water in your backpack. Especially on a hot day this will save you some money! Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. Parts of the zoo are located on a hill and may not be easy for those...
