A Day in: Washington, D.C.

I’ve been living/working in Georgetown with my sister since the end of May until I leave for back home (San Diego) in about a week. So, i’ve come up with my ideal day now that I know of the places and sorta have the vibe.

8am: Yoga taught by my sister 🙂 or Kayla workout

9am: Coffee (most important meal of the day) at Baked and Wired, Colony Club, or Dolcezza


Breakfast is usually at home but if I were to choose any place it would definitely be LPQ (basic, i know) or a Coconut Yogurt parfait from Greenheart Juice Shop (so good).


11am: Grab a Citibike and cruise through Georgetown or walk to the Dupont Circle Farmers market for a smoothie bowl, fresh flowers and veggies, or just general top-notch people watching.

1pm: Lunch at hidden gem: Naked Lunch (inside of a grocery store but don’t be fooled- it is so so good. Get the Sushi bowl, thank me later).

OR: Chaia (healthy tacos),  or Duke’s Grocery (think fresh and healthy pub food) for their avo toast or “Proper”Burger that they are known for.

Chaia! So Yummmmz

3pm: Between lunch/dinner I would ideally decide to either: read in the park or play a quick game of tennis/lounge by the pool, cruise through Union Market, or walk this trail all the way to the waterfront of the Potomac River.

6pm: Drinks at the gem Harold Black for a cool speak-easy and hidden spot (dinner menu looked good there too) dinner at Cava if i’m feeling something casual, or le Diplomate for a little more fancy/casual.

Rose’s Luxury = a dream…Aesthetically pleasing in both taste and visuals ❤

Things you should know:

  • Baked and Wired > Georgetown Cupcake, hands down. Hype doesn’t always mean quality!
  • Don’t be a mean driver, there’s already enough of those…
  • You can learn a lot of history from just walking through old neighborhoods and reading the plaques on the houses.

Things you might also want to consider doing:

  • 305 fitness (think: 60 minutes of living your dream of being Beyonce’s back up dancer while burning some major calories and having the time of your life)
  • Visit the national monuments. Although very touristy it is still extremely cool and beautiful to walk around up close. I’d especially recommend the less-popular and my favorite: the Jefferson Memorial. Great place to have a snack along the waterfront on the steps.
  • Grab some District donuts
  • Visit this cat cafe in the heart of Georgetown ❤
