    The Perfect 3 Days in Washington DC Itinerary

    Towering monuments, world-class museums, a thriving food scene, and-oh yeah- The White House. Washington DC is more than just an 8th grade field trip. In fact, it’s the perfect spot for a short break no matter what your age! 3 days in Washington DC is the perfect amount of time to really get a taste of the nation’s capital, as well as experience a few off-the-beaten-path moments.  After having spent 4 years dating a Washington DC local, and even showing my own friends around the city when they come to visit, I think I’ve got a pretty good grip on some of the best things to do in Washington DC.…

Despite having been to Washington D.C. more than five times now, I had never seen the Capitol Building.

So when I saw that Free Tours by Foot offered a History and Desserts walking tour of the Eastern Market neighborhood in D.C., I knew I had found my calling as a future tour guide (I am also a huge history nerd).
