Washington DC: Things To Do and See

I'm not going to reinvent the wheel on this page. There are so many great websites to guide you through all the wonderfulness that is Washington DC. I will post some favorite things, and also some favorite sites. There's also a great concierge in the hotel lobby just waiting to help you.


If you enjoy shopping, you're in luck! There is a plaza of over 30 upscale retailers and restaurants directly across the street from our hotel. Just walk out the front doors and across H Street. On 10 acres with sleek walkways and glassy street-level businesses, CityCenter DC is home to high-end boutiques including a dazzling, multi-level Dior outpost, Italian cashmere source Loro Piana and menswear power Paul Stuart. My car-loving hubby, Bob, enjoyed the Tesla store! Click here for a map and directory.


The neighborhood we are staying in is called Penn Quarter and it's right next door to Chinatown. Here's a website dedicated to all the great things to do right in our neighborhood:



While Bob and I were checking out the area, we ate at a great restaurant called Bobby Van's. It is only a couple of blocks from the hotel. They specialize in steak and seafood but also have burgers, sandwiches and salads. The service was fabulous. Here's a link to more information, including menus and phone number for reservations: https://bobbyvans.com/steakhouse/ny-ave

Our hotel is right on top of a very central Metro stop. You don't even have to go outside to get to it. If you are feeling adventurous, then all of DC is at your fingertips (via your SmarTrip card). Here's a website that will help you navigate the system:
