Washington DC Travel Tips: 10 Things to Know Before You Go to DC
Things you NEED to know BEFORE you go to Washington DC. DC is often referred to as The District. You could easily spend a week in DC, especially if you want to see George Washington’s house in Mount Vernon and Thomas Jefferson’s house in Monticello. The City is laid out in a grid pattern with lettered streets running east-west, numbered streets running north-south. Diagonal streets — usually named after states — often intersect at circles (30 circles)
Dupont Circle is my favorite circle. Comprised of four quadrants (NE, NW, SE, and SW), which spread out from the U.S. Capitol.
There are three Airports -- none of them actually in DC
Reagan (DCA) -- right next to DC -- connected by Metro or $20 Cab Ride
Washington Dulles (IAD)
Amtrak to Union Station
Transportation in DC
One of the 10 of the most walkable cities in the USA
Travel + Leisure rated D.C. as the third rudest city in America,
Smart Trip Card
Capital Bike Share
175 stations across the city
Sign up for a day, or three
Driving: Beware -- traffic is miserable and oneway streets abound
Parking is expensive -- Use parking panda
Smithsonians are free
Most on the national mall
Air and Space has 2 locations -- one by Dulles
Newseum and Spy Museum are expensive
My favorite is the Bureau of Engraving and Printing
No reservations required September 5, 2017 through March 2, 2018
Washington Monument elevator is really cool -- but it’s often broken
Best gift shops are in the museums
Capitol Building or the White House, make sure to book your tickets in advance.
Capitol tour, reservations online or through your Congressional representative or senator.
Capitol Visitor Center provides a limited number of day-passes starting at 9 a.m.
White House, reserve a few months before your trip. Thru congressional representative.
Time to visit
Cherry Blossom Season
Not the summer when all the school kids are there
And the Summer is oppressively hot and humid, especially in August
And maybe not when the govt is in full swing
I like Winter -- no crowds at all
Can be really expensive, as can parking
My favorites are the Park Hyatt and the Mayflower
Stay outside of DC in Arlington or Alexandria for cheaper hotels
Just a short metro ride in to the city
The national mall and monument area has almost no food
Union Station and Le’fant plaza good for lunch, or around the white house
Avoid the Chinese food in Chinatown -- it’s all really awful
But George Bush’s favorite Chinese restaurant is just 20 minutes driving outside of DC
Peking Gourmet Inn in Fall Church -- Awesome Peking Duck
My Favorites: Potbelly
My Favorites: Moby Dick House of Kabob
My Favorites: Ben’s Chili Bowl
DC is more than just monuments and the National Mall

Connecticut is one of the most charming of all the American states, known for its rich history, its academia, its beautiful autumns, and its sunny summers by the beach.
With a rustic mix of coastal towns and rural havens, there is a lot to love about this area of New England.
Unlike many US states, Connecticut has access to the coast; calling all surfers, sand lovers and beach bums!
Being on the Atlantic Coast the weather can be harsh at times but when the sun shines over Connecticut it is glorious.
From New Haven to Mystic there is always something to discover in Connecticut.
Mystic, for example, is famous for its Seaport museum which houses ancient sailing ships, and the Mystic Aquarium too that houses the Beluga Whales.
Regardless of whether you end up in this part of the world, there are certain baseline requirements that your new homestead must meet.
From access to good public schools for those with young children and easy access to commuter routes for those who have to travel to work, there is an awful lot to think about.
Connecticut has some of the most desirable real estate in the country, some of the best classrooms for your kiddos, low crime rates, and even more still, particularly in a select few places.
Here are the 10 best places to live in Connecticut for 2018:
3. West Hartford.
6. Old Greenwich.
10. Cos Cob.

Chicago, Illinois Travel Guide - Must-See Attractions
Chicago is a city in the U.S. state of Illinois, and is the third most populous city in the United States, and the most populous city in the American Midwest. Chicago was incorporated as a city in 1837, near a portage between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River watershed.
The most important places to visit in Chicago are: Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower, this iconic symbol of Chicago was the world's tallest building when it was built), Millennium Park (a great urban park, among the most famous landmarks of Chicago and a site for many major city events), Shedd Aquarium (one of the world's largest aquariums. It displays an impressive array of animals), Grant Park (called the front lawn of Chicago, the park is wonderfully landscaped and offers many sites for an urban escape), Navy Pier (situated right on Lake Michigan, the Pier has a festive atmosphere with entertainment, shops and restaurants) and many more.
If you want to save time and money, the most important Chicago travel tip is to compare prices before booking a hotel room or a flight. You can do this for free on a site that searches through hundreds of other travel websites in real time for the best travel deals available.
Route 66: America's Lost Highway Turns 90
Route 66 turns 90 years old this year and despite preservation efforts, the fate of this iconic highway is still in question. WSJ’s Jeff Bush travels to the Mojave Desert to take a look at one infamous section of the Mother Road.

SUPER BLOOM 2019 Dana Point Headlands Trail & Harbor Point Park California | Walk Tour
Another great place to see Super Bloom. The California Sunflower Bush blossomed with vibrant yellow color in Dana Point Headlands Conservation Area and Harbor Point Park. The breathtaking views of the Strand Beach and the Pacific Ocean are enough to amaze you but with the blanket of sunflowers made it feel like paradise.
Super Bloom is a rare phenomenon that happens once in a decade but it's the second time in California. Thanks to steady pour of rain during winter followed by warm weather, the dormant seeds started to breakout, creating a blanket of vibrant wildflower across the desert floor and mountains.

1. Beaver Nuggets: caramel coated puffs, they are like heaven in tasty puff form.

3. The Jerky Bar: more beef jerky than you can shake a Texas stick at.
4. The bakery goods: have a Texas size cinnamon roll or maybe a Kolaches. You can't go wrong.
5. Grab a 44 oz Dr. Pepper for the road... only 79 cents (plus tax).
Oh, and you should know that the signs on the highways in Texas are correct. Buc-ee's does have the cleanest and most bathrooms around.
