Discovering DC: Washington


In this weeks Discovering DC we are treated to where's great to visit in DC from Jana of The Jane Tales!

What's your history with DC?
Born and raised in the South, I moved to the DMV area after completing undergrad in 2008. I worked in pancreatic cancer research at Johns Hopkins University for 2 years before deciding to pursue a graduate degree. I'm currently a student at George Washington University, using my off time to explore and enjoy everything DC has to offer.

Discovering DC- what are your favourite places to shop/eat/go with friends/people watch?
Hmm.. there are so many distinctly different areas in the city that I don't think I can choose! I really adore Oldtown Alexandria, Georgetown, and Dupont Circle but, if I had to choose one spot, it would probably be the U Street Corridor. From Busboys & Poets to El Centro to Masa 14 to Ulah's Bistro, there is such a wide variety of delicious food spots and bars littered all around the corridor. Between the different bars, clothing boutiques, and book stores, there is always a ton to watch and do on U Street.

Perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon in DC?
Saturdays are my time to unwind and spend as much time with friends as much as possible so my perfect Saturday afternoon would include a picnic lunch, visiting an art gallery, and snapping pictures. An art gallery visit can be changed to a visit to Eastern Market or people watching in Georgetown. One of my favorite things about DC is its buzzing and inspiring art & culture scene; there are always tons to do and explore.
