Day trip to D.C

It’s 21 days into the new year, and I’m happy to say that I haven’t wasted any time on my quest to travel more. My best friend and I took a spur of the moment trip to Washington, D.C. It was my first time in my Nation’s capital so I was kind of hyped. Even with snow showers and winds that slapped me crossed my face I made the four hour trek from New York to Washington.

1st stop: Brunch at Art and Soul/

Located-The Liaison Capitol Hill, 415 New Jersey Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001

Here my bff and I had Chicken and Waffles with a twist. It was my first time eating the poultry and doughy combo and I must say it was delicious.

5th stop The White House & The Hamilton for Dessert.

I really enjoyed dining at the Hamilton it is a gorgeous venue with ample space. At 10pm they open their upstairs bar and they have free live music performances.
