The summer has flown by and your time in Washington is sadly wrapping up. You most likely moved to DC with an overflowing Bucket List of items to accomplish: playing kickball on the National Mall, kayaking on the Potomac, watching the 4th of July fireworks, and much more. What makes DC so unique is that there is almost too many places to go and things to do, and 8 weeks is a short amount of time to fit it all in. Luckily you still have one more weekend to squeeze in last minute items.
To help you out, the PAs have come up with their list of final ‘must-do’ activities before you leave the city:
Ben: Take a trip to “The BEACH” before you leave the District. This one-of-a-kind ‘Beach’ covers 10,000 square feet with nearly one million recyclable plastic balls. Grab a group of friends, buy your $5 student tickets and get lost in the ocean.
Lucero: Catch a free show at the Kennedy Center! Make a reservation to have dinner with your friends at the Roof Terrace Restaurant which comes with a panoramic view of the city. It’s on the pricey side, but the experience is remarkable.
Savannah: Eat a homemade pop tart at Ted’s Bulletin. There are several different flavors and each one is absolutely delicious! In additional to the traditional flavors, the current seasonal flavor is Key Lime Pie, yum. Ted’s has two convenient locations: 14th Street and on Capitol Hill neighborhoods.
Kendrick: Check out a second hand book store. There’s one in DuPont Circle and another really great one in Eastern Market. They’re a great way to unwind after work or to spend your mornings on the weekends :) And obviously, they’re cheap!
John: Take a tour of the monuments at night. Most of the memorials are open late and their illumination makes after dark a perfectly picturesque time to visit. You can do a self-guided walking tour with a group of friends, or sit back, relax and let the experts take you on a bus tour.
