As Marylanders, my friends and I are certainly familiar with the DC area. I have taken many educational field trips, my mother commutes to DC almost everyday, and I pass DC every time I move to and from my university. Aside from my home town being Baltimore, DC is the closest option for a major world-wide city—and Baltimore is only somewhat in that realm! But for this occasion, we chose to take a fun day in DC.
So my friends Nick and Kara and I caught the train and rode down and it took surprisingly no time at all. We knew we wanted to see the National Gallery since our last experience was in junior year of high school.
Then, without even knowing where we were going next, we decided on the Hirshhorn Museum. None of us had been there before so it was a fresh experience.
And in the end, aside from missing the last train and dealing with a variety of taxi service apps, it was a great day!
