Wandering in Washington, D.C.

American University, Washington, D.C.

Whenever I go back to D.C I feel very nostalgic. I remember being a young student, living on my own for the first time and departing as a college graduate who had had my own apartment, made some great friends and learned a lot about myself. I am so grateful for those years in D.C.!

My first stop is always The American University campus and visiting all of my favorite spots.

I lived at McDowell Hall my first semester and spent time reading and studying on the deck behind the dorm. It was the perfect place to get some sun and take in the beautiful D.C. weather.

Walking around the Tenleytown area and stopping at my first apartment on Wisconsin Ave brings back good memories.

No trip to D.C. would be complete without a meal at Z-Burger

What’s a shop-a-holic to do on a beautiful day in D.C.? Head to Georgetown, of course!

Then have a leisurely lunch at Martin’s Tavern. Order the Fish & Chips…you won’t regret it! This Georgetown staple has been around since the Great Depression and has seen the likes of presidents from Harry S. Truman to George W. Bush.

Follow it up with the best gelato in town! Head to Dolcezza and sample some of their indulgent flavors. I’m partial to the Valrohna dark chocolate. If you really want to splurge, order the Dulce de Leche latte and people-watch over coffee.

Saving the best for last — catching up with my former roommate and friend, Steph, so we can tour AU and reminisce together!
