Best coffeeshop I know. It's so relaxed that you can buy a cup of coffee, lounge on a couch all day, and no one will ever bother you. Good spot for working, reading.

Rock and roll, my friends. Range of music from local bands to up-and-coming national favorites. Worth checking their website, or just walking past to see who's playing.

Bustling and busy, Dupont Circle Park is a great spot to relax with a cup of coffee from one of the many nearby coffeeshops and just watch the scene. Musicians, chess players, yoga enthusiasts, and just people enjoying the day.

You can bike on a rented Capital Bikeshare bike all the way up the Capital Crescent Trail from Georgetown to Bethesda, with no cars to bother you. We often do this on the weekend, with a delicious breakfast at Bethesda Bagel waiting for us in Bethesda. Plan for one hour to Bethesda, one hour back on average.

This is where most of the monuments and museums are. It's about a 30 minute easy walk (downhill) from the apartment, or you could Uber or take one of the shared Capital Bikeshare bikes from just across the street.

Getting Around
Absolutely the best way to get around DC, if the weather is good. Lots of bike stations all around the city: pick up a bike, drop it off at any other station. And download the SpotCycle app to see in advance which stations have bikes (or parking spots) available.
