To – Do List : DC

Yes, this is basically a ‘bucket-list’ . Since I’m new to the area and not exactly how long I”ll stick around here I decided to make a list of the must-see and must-do things for this area. Thus far its pretty touristy as that is most of the stuff that people tell me I MUST see…if you have any other ‘hidden’ gems of the city that I should check out please do tell! I will do my best to write about them after I complete the tasks and if I get to the end of the list I will have to take recommendations on what else to do with my time!
