DC Weekend Itinerary


Breakfast at Call your Mother – Good food, good vibes, and good people is the focus point of this bagel shop and deli. This IG-worthy stop is the perfect way to start your weekend trip! Their bagels don’t meet my NJ standards, but are pretty solid for a DC bagel.

Walk around Georgetown and a paddle boat – Georgetown is home to beautiful cobble streets and massive houses. You can enjoy the views on a relaxing walk right next to the water or you can rent a paddleboat to get out on the water. Just be prepare for a little bit of a workout as you pedal through the water.

Get lunch at La Cosecha Latin American market – This contemporary Latin American Marketplace is perfect to stop by and get lunch. It offers several different restaurants to choose from and has tons of shops, all designed with Latin American culture and tradition in mind.

Dinner at Yardbird – elevated restaurant that serves Southern cuisine. I tried the fried green tomatoes which were delicious and I don’t even like tomatoes. The lobster mac and cheese was good but $60 and I am not sure it was worth the price. We also had a crispy chicken sandwich that had the perfect crunch and the chicken and waffles. But the main star was the chocolate cake – it was honesty the best piece of chocolate cake I have ever had!



Get coffee and a biscuit from A Baked Joint – I’ve tried over 15 cafes in DC, and A Baked Joint has THE best coffee and breakfast around. All of their breads and treats are baked fresh daily and they are DELICIOUS! I got their goat and herb biscuit sammie one too many times and it was amazing.

Walk the monuments –  Seeing some of D.C famous statues and monument is a must! These are the must-see monuments – Washington monument, World War II memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Martin Luther King memorial, The White House, Tidal Basin and more. Most of them are all walking distance from each other.

Go to the top of the Washington Monument– You need to get tickets the day before at 10 am here. The Washington Monument is 500 feet up and offers a breathtaking view of the city! Definitely a bucket list item.

Any of the Smithsonian museums – All the Smithsonians are free to enter. There are a total of 17 museums and galleries located in D.C. – some of those being the American history museum, space museum, and natural history. There is tons to see and explore at each one!

Go to THRoW Social at night – With the saying “Let’s get Flocked Up” you know you will have a good time! Throw Social is a tropical bar & venue with cocktails, games, cabanas and small bites. It’s such a photo worthy place but also a lot of fun!


Brunch at Ted’s Bulletin –  Serving unique twists on modern American food, Ted’s bulletin offers a classic dining experience. Menu options include Nana’s Biscuit and Sausage Gravy, Chicken N Biscuits and Monte Cristo. They are known for their homemade pop tarts!

Smithsonian’s National Zoo – It’s Free! One of the most populator attractions in DC, this is 163 arces is home to over 2,700 animals and more than 390 species.

Dinner at D’Lena – D’Lena serves upscale Mexican cuisine and cocktails. The decor and vibes are amazing, it makes you feel like you are in Tulum! They also have a speakeasy bar down stairs that you should check out after dinner!
