WHAT TO DO IN WASHINGTON DC.
Hi loves, I spent the weekend in the nation's capital this past week. Washington DC which is neither a state or a big city is one of my favorite places in the US. The atmosphere feels very preppy and lacks color. What it lacks in color, it makes up for in history, love of country and good spots for any kind of entertainment.
This trip was however centered around visiting the new African American museum. It was commissioned last year and I couldn't wait to go there. It was a bit of a hustle but I did have a good time.
I stayed at THE DARCY hotel at 1515 Rhode Island Ave (streets in DC are named after states, numbers and letters. Pretty interesting). It is a classy, clean and good hotel. It is a must-stay. A bit away from the craziness but not too far from all the action.
I had a fantastic dinner at Country Farmers when I arrived. Downside, it is an extremely popular spot and there was an hour and half wait for a table so I just got a to-go plate. Too bad I ate it all before I could take a picture (sorry not sorry. I was famished!) but it is a must visit. I tried their pork chops and my company tried the chicken. Good food. If you want to visit, I advice that you book a reservation. Their skillet cornbread is to die for and a million thanks to the waitress with locs who was graceful enough to save me. Thanks girl.
So off we went to the National Museum of African American history and Culture. Before you go in, you need to get tickets. Same day passes are available on their website before 6:30 am so get up real early to get those tickets. Other ticketing options available. Visit the website at www.nmaahc.com/passes.
The feel and history stored in this place is beyond anything I have ever seen. I go to museums and this has got to be the most well curated museums I have ever been to. I am attaching photos from my visit below and also a short video on my YouTube channel for your viewing pleasure.
There are several places to visit in DC including cruising on the Potomac River, visiting the National Mall, among others. I would however advice that you start your tour here.
