Washington, D.C. is filled with an abundance of culture. A short walk down any one of its streets will result in the discovery of a gem, both great and small. There are museums, night clubs, lounges, historical sites, restaurants, shops, boutiques, the White House...I could go on forever.
I live just 20 minutes outside of The Nation's Capital. Considering the close proximity to my home, one would be led to believe I have experienced several of these "gems". Nope. Guess again. That is so not the case. This country girl promises to visit the city and explore all the nooks and crannies that attract people both near and far. I do appreciate D.C. I just have to make time to explore it. For now, it looks like Santa has a few tricks up his sleeve and wants to shower you with prizes from several local D.C. businesses.
(Imagine me saying this in my Oprah you-get-a-car voice)
