Our forefathers picked a really great spot for the hub of the U.S. government. Not only is our capital home to Congress, the White House and a bunch of historic stuff, it’s now a cultural hot spot with tons of fun restaurants, bars and shops. We searched for the absolute must-visit places that locals rave about. When you’re in town for Girls Night Out: Washington, D.C., be sure to stop by a few!
To Stay: The River Inn, 924 25th St. NW, Washington D.C. (202) 337-7600
Why We It:
Live in the lap of luxury for a night or two in one of the newly renovated rooms equipped with pillow-top mattresses, flat-screen TVs and free WiFi.
Ride around the city on a bike—it’s complimentary at the hotel—or walk just 15 minutes and you’re at the White House!
Go downstairs and dine at Dish, the hotel’s on-site restaurant that serves up cutting-edge cuisine. We suggest starting your meal with a glass of wine off their new drink menu and ending with the light and airy Mango-Mousse & Cake with raspberry sauce.
