For three years in a row I spent a week around my birthday in Washington, D.C. I explored the National Mall and visited several monuments, visited the Smithsonian Museums, found some great local places to eat, and hiked miles and miles. Each year I found something different to do and some new neighborhood to explore. I have no doubt if I only spent a week a year in D.C. it would take me a lifetime to see it all!
Here are some of my favorite photos from my three years’ of exploring the nation’s capital. I hope to return again some day (I’ll be skipping D.C. in 2016) and continue my quest to visit all the monuments and memorials!
