The 4h of July in D.C is amazing is so many ways! There are so many things going on, so. many. people. and sweltering temperatures! July in most places is hot, but it is SO hot and humid in DC in July. We had underestimated this fact when we went. We stayed with awesome family that drove us around and saved us from a bunch of hassle and heat stroke. If you are visiting and aren't as fortunate as us to have people driving you around. Pack plenty of water with you! Duck into museums (even if they aren't on your itinerary) for a little AC and a break. Make restaurant reservations in advance. We were starving for lunch and melting in the sun one day, and had to walk several blocks past many many restaurants before we found one with a table available. That said, it was a really fun trip. Filled with lots of amazing museums and good times. It was especially nice to spend time with family that we don't get to see often. This post is way over due! I'll be posting some more pictures on the photo gallery page. Some tips: use the metro, so cheap and easy! Pack water, and don't be shy about dunking your feet in some fountains...a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! Don't try and over do it, the heat and the crowds are a lot, don't spoil the fun with exhaustion. If you can duck away to the Kennedy Center for a performance, I highly recommend it. It was the highlight of the trip for me!
Hi there! I'm Skeeter. I grew up moving a lot and that makes me a bit restless for travel and exploration. I started this blog with my husband Pat when we decided to backpack New Zealand for a year. We are always looking for the next adventure and are loving life. We're just your average couple with two sassy dogs and a love for travel. We're sharing our travels and the tips we pick up along the way.
Hello! I'm Liz. Blogging is very new to me, but I'm so excited to finally write as much as I talk!
