Last week, I was visiting some of our properties in the Baltimore/Washington DC area. (Red Roof Inn Baltimore North – Timonium, Red Roof PLUS+ Baltimore-Washington DC/BWI Airport, Red Roof PLUA+ Baltimore-Washington DC/BW Parkway, Red Roof PLUS+ Washington DC – Rockville) This trip was especially fun because I was able to stay with a good friend from college over the weekend. We spent a lot of the weekend catching up and on Saturday we went in to the Washington DC. We rented bikes and road them all around the National Mall and saw most of the monuments.
This was a really fun way to see the city. It was a beautiful day outside and really makes me look forward to the spring!
I have been to DC several times when I was younger but biking around was a fun way to see everything. There are several bike rental companies but we chose Capital Bikeshare. They have a ton of drop off and pick up locations around the city.
It was nice visiting the city with someone who lives there. I didn’t have to worry about looking at a map and she knew different places to view the monuments and great places to stop along the way.
Here are some of the pictures I took while on the ride
We saw a ton of monuments including the Capital and White House. We rode over to the eastern market, which was similar to a flea market. They had everything there; produce, art, furniture, and hot food. My friend bought some neat earrings while we were there. We ended our day by getting lunch at DC-3. They have every type of hot dog you could imagine and you can even get cotton candy as a side!
