Sunday Snapshot: Georgetown Waterfront

rosslyn

It had been a while since I’d been to the Georgetown Waterfront, so I decided it would be worth exploring for a Sunday Snapshot. The views are just as picturesque as I remember – and with some new restaurants (and more on the way), it’s also a great place to dine and enjoy a day (or evening) away from city life.

Sunday Snapshot: 14th Street, Washington, DC

With a new apartment building, shop, or bar and restaurant opening nearly every month, the 14th Street Corridor in Washington, DC, is changing rapidly. The change has been so drastic that some blocks are practically unrecognizable from just a couple years ago.

Sunday Snapshot: Farmers’ Markets in Washington, DC

farmersmarket

One of my favorite weekend activities is to shop at DC-area farmers’ markets. Above is just a snapshot of what’s currently available at area markets this summer. (Sadly, there’s still no way to capture the delicious smells of fresh food and produce in a blog post!)

If you haven’t been to any of the farmers’ markets yet, check out this great interactive map from the Washington Post detailing more than 170 markets in this area.

This beautiful design from DC’s own Cherry Blossom Creative can also help guide your purchases by showing you what is (and is not) in season.

Bon appétit! 

Sunday Snapshot: Dupont Circle, Washington, DC

The fountain at Dupont Circle is one of the most photographed spots outside of the traditional tourist sites in Washington, DC.

Beyond that fountain, though, lies a neighborhood full of beautiful gardens, unique architectural gems, and local institutions. Above is a snapshot of what just one part of the neighborhood has to offer.

From top left to bottom right: sculptures on New Hampshire Avenue NW; a rose on 21st St. NW; ivy-covered steps on 21st St. NW; the patio outside Zorba’s Café on Connecticut Avenue; cactus on 21st St. NW; and books on display at Second Story Books on P St NW.
