Eat, Drink And Play In Washington
Washington DC isn’t all politics; there are plenty of great dining options, museums and hole-in-the-wall bars to explore. Take Jessica Voelker, food and drink writer and Washington DC local’s advice and sample Thai delicacies in the capital.
Little Serow – At Johnny Monis’s northern-Thai place in Dupont Circle, you usually have to line up for your table – but it’s always well worth the wait. A laid-back vibe teemed with top-grade food makes for a real winner.
Columbia Room – A tiny bar (10 seats) where drinks take centre-stage, this is one space where you’ll get to know your neighbours. The cocktail tasting is worth it, so make sure you’ve got a ride home.
Sculpture Garden at the National Gallery of Art – This whimsical and always inspiring space makes for a fun day out. There are trees and pretty flowering plants in summer, as well as a fountain that serves as an ice rink in winter.
Gettysburg – Book a tour to Gettysburg and witness the site where the largest battle ever fought on USA soil took place.
