A DC Adventure – Part II

Outfit Details: Top // Shorts (similar)// Sandals (old)// Sunglasses// Watch

Today, I’m excited to share with you the rest of our incredible trip to DC!

Keeping pace with the start of our short trip, we ran through the rest of our checklist at lightning speed.

Our Saturday evening started with dinner at DBGB in the city center. This was by far my favorite meal of the entire trip and the atmosphere was just perfect – energetic yet still romantic. I loved that the restaurant was in the City Center because that area reminds me of a little piece of San Francisco right in the middle of DC.

Following dinner we changed into more comfortable clothes and took off on a night tour of the monuments. We walked all the way from our hotel in Georgetown to the White House, Washington Monument, World War II Memorial, and finally the Lincoln Memorial (and of course everywhere in between).

Great quote in the World War II memorial. I think they were on to something ;).
The amazing Lincoln Memorial
Visiting the Lincoln Memorial was the thing I looked forward to the most because he is my personal favorite president for many reasons, and we just so happen to share the same birthday!
I’m so glad we opted for viewing these monuments late at night because we were able to get quiet, uninterrupted views. The gravity of these installations seemed to weigh even more heavily at night. We must have sat on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial for over an hour hanging out and taking in the view of the Washington monument over the Reflecting pool.

On my final day in DC, we packed in even more museums, this time opting for The International Spy Museum, the Smithsonian American History museum, and the Aerospace Museum. Each spot was incredible in it’s own way, but I have to say that The Spy Museum was definitely the most fun. Let’s just say, if you’ve had aspirations of being a “Bond Girl” (like me), you will have hours of entertainment in this museum.

Finally, the trip wouldn’t been complete without a stop at DuPont Circle. We grabbed spots on the patio outside of DuPont bar and enjoyed what must have been one of the prettiest days in DC all year.

Visiting DC reminded me of how important it is to take every opportunity to travel and gain deepened appreciation for the world around you. The more I travel, the more I realize this little Oklahoma girl has so much more to learn about this world, and I’m incredibly grateful for that.

 

Now to plan our next trip – any suggestions on where to go?!
