Congressional Cemetery is just across the street. Walk up around the corner on Potomac Avenue and you'll find the main entrance. This is a perfect place for a peaceful walk, and also an off-leash dog park! You can get a day guest pass for a dog for $10 per dog. On a nice day, you could have a picnic or a long cup of coffee while letting Fido romp around for hours! And you can see gravesides of some pretty amazing folks -- J Edgar Hoover and John Philip Sousa to name a few! Visit: https://cemeterydogs.org/membership/ for more information. Day passes are available in the main office at 1801 E Street SE, Monday-Friday, 9-5. These day passes may only be used on the purchase date. Gate checkers on the weekends may also have day passes available for sale. Day passes are $10 and require you to sign a waiver that you will carry with you on your walk.

We love the Wharf area, and love when we get to see a show at the Anthem. We've seen the Lumineers, Sara Bareilles, She & Him, and countless others here! We love the vibe of the Wharf in general. Our favorite restaurant is Lupo Marino, and we love grabbing a drink up at Whiskey Charlie (on top of the Canopy Hotel).

Food scene
We love eating outside here on a nice evening. Pro tip : get 1-2 orders of fajitas for the whole family, ask for extra cheese, beans and rice, and you can save some cash! Margaritas are also delish:)

Since I like wine but don't know anything about it, the fact that their menu has clear descriptions of the wine, what you'll like based on general wine categories, and amazingly helpful staff, you'll always find a delicious choice for you! Only a few outside tables, but they're fun if you can snag one.

We love this place! Fast casual and DELISH! The staff is super helpful with recommendations, and grab a cold beer to wash all of that yummy (sometimes spicy!) food down. Sit at tables with benches and enjoy all of the delights. We love the double-fried chicken, the veggie fried rice, and the brussels!

We love the beer and food at Right Proper. This brewpub is in one of our favorite neighborhoods called Shaw. It's close to Howard University, and is an awesome area to walk around too! There are some new shops close to this brewpub to check out too!

All of the Smithsonian Museums
The Smithsonian Museums are free an open to the public daily. They are fun for kids and grown-ups. We love all of them, but The African American Museum along with the Museum of the American Indian, along with the Portrait Gallery are unique and wonderful. You can't go wrong with any of the Smithsonians!
Vervoersmogelijkheden
The Metro can be a great way to see the city
You will have metro cards for each member of your party that you can fill with whatever amount of money you need. These cards should be returned to the apartment upon check-out. Thanks!
