    Great day on the river. Never better. One guy floating on the river nearby said he didn't want to go home. I hope he didn't mess up his marriage.

    This is a DC institution with a huge selection of books as well as an excellent cafe serving fresh food and a variety of coffee. I could easily have spent the entire day here.

    Fab farmers market. Who says North Americans have a poor food culture - if you know where to look - not Safeway nor Albertsons - you find somewhere like this!

    Amazing fresh produce - fruit, veg, flowers, meat, fish, eggs, dairy, bakery and the rest! Wonderful to visit in October with fat luscious tomatoes, peppers bursting with colour and all the types of squash you need for Halloween!

    Book Arts sells specialty journals, note cards, invitations and alike items. Steve and John have been doing this by hand for years and can create a custom Journal, photo album or invitations for just about any occasion. They have been working for the White House for years and have created gifts for as high profile figures as the pope.

    I walked over to pick up some souvenirs for some friends back home. This store has a large selection of DC gifts! You’re sure to find something for everyone on your list! Staff is extremely courteous and helpful.

    During a business trip in Washington DC , I took some personal time and went to Chocolate House. As I walked down the stairs, my eager anticipation grew - I knew I was in for a real treat. I was not disappointed. In addition to beautiful chocolates that look like jewels and consist of high quality chocolates accented with fine coordinating and accents, they offer many different chocolate bars.

    Go here to purchase chocolates for yourself, for your loved one (I purchased a box to bring to California to share with my husband - it took a lot of willpower to not eat some before arriving home), or for business associates. People who receive these chocolates will truly love the gift.

    I was lucky enough to come across this bookstore when visiting a nearby comic store.
    It's a real gem of a place with shelves practically floor to ceiling holding everything from first edition classics to modern fiction.
    I was able to buy some lucky finds at reasonable prices.

    Located in Georgetown right off the main strip. Daughter said that the macaroons were very good!

    Just be aware that they do not accept cash.

    Miss Pixie’s is top of my list of shops when I visit D.C. Living in England, I can’t shop for furniture there, but I am doing well with other items! The shop inventory is so interesting and I am in my happy place while browsing! I’ll be back in 2020!

    If you are going to DC, you need to go to Neuhaus chocolates. Every visitor can sample the chocolate and once you do,you will be hooked. The chocolates are a little pricey, but they are so good they are worth it.

    LiLi The First is a true boutique, its hard to find an owner that works directly with all their national and international designers directly! Love the styles, and if you don't get it while its available then you've missed out. I HIGHLY recommend visiting the store and website .. many things look better tried on than in a photo or on a hanger.
