Washington D.C. is not a state but rather a district – something I only learned when we went on a big bus tour. Having not been to the east coast since I was practically four, we decided to visit the capital of the United States. It was our first time there and the only thing I knew about Washington D.C. was that it is where the White House is located. Little did we know that Georgetown is an incredibly beautiful and historic neighborhood. I wouldn’t mind living there!
Being very touristy, our family visited the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, the National Mall, the National World War II Memorial and the White House of course. I really don’t know much about these great tourist sites but enjoyed the view anyway. If there’s one interesting I learned, it is that you are not allowed to build anything taller than the Washington Monument in D.C. Who would want to see a random building in the background, right? It just kills your view. Walking along the National Mall was a real treat because we don’t get to do much strolling in Manila. It’s a stunning area, and we took our time to enjoy the view.
So here’s Georgetown. A great town with super colorful houses. It is one of the most photogenic places I’ve been to that isn’t a beach. Credits to coach Ronan for these great photos he took of me hehe. Also, let’s not forget about the world famous Georgetown cupcakes. I personally love the Red Velvet flavour but to be honest, all of them are equally as good. Another great food spot is astro doughnuts and fried chicken. The creme brûlée doughnut is the best! We planned to tour around D.C. for four days but after three, we ran out of things to do. It’s a great place to explore and take photos. So if one person in your family likes history and another loves taking cute photos for their social media accounts, this is the place to go 🙂 I mean, who wouldn’t want to visit the capital of the United States?
