|Jogging track |
If you are staying in the Georgetown area of Washington & want to exercise, check out the old canal running parallel to M Street only one block away on the south side. Along the canal, there is a dirt road, originally used by the horses that once pulled the barges on the canal. The dirt road is closed to cars & superb for jogging or walking. Run westwards & after about 800 meters, you will find yourself in tranquil surroundings, with the canal on one side & woods on the other, stretching down to the Potomac River. The road goes on for miles & is used extensively by local joggers.
|Cherry blossoms |
March to April is the right time to be in DC. Take a walk & admire the beautiful flowers on the cherry trees or join the yearly festival.
|National Harbor |
Washington has a harbor! I didn't know - do you?
|What to do |
The Lincoln Memorial, Capitol Building, war memorials & White House are among the best of the attractions. Local bus tour operators have three to five-day guided tours of the eastern US covering visits to Washington, Niagara Falls, Boston and and New York with hotel accommodations for all these cities. You only need to pay for food & entry to attractions in each city yourself.
|Russia House Restaurant & Lounge |
Go to Russia House Restaurant & Lounge next to the Washington Hilton. Excellent place for good fine dining meal and the best vodka & martini bar in all of Washington. Lots of fun.
