Things To Do

DC has way more than just politics and monuments!

National Mall

Washington, DC

We've lived in DC for several years and never get tired of visits to the National Mall. You can go for a walk or bike ride and check out the museums and monuments.

Great place for coffee, pastries, and breakfast.

Baked & Wired

Amazing bakery and cupcake shop. We think they are better than Georgetown cupcakes, but feel free to do your own taste test.


Call Your Mother

Several Locations around the city,

The best bagel place in DC (New Yorkers, lower your expectations slightly). We did a blind taste test with our friends Max and Laura, so there is some (biased) research behind this.

Colada Shop

14th Street or The Wharf,

One of Dana's favorite happy hour spots - they have great drinks (we recommend the mojito or pina colada), empanadas, and Cuban style coffee.
