I am such a proud Washingtonian! I love that you can stop by the Washington Monument then hop over to one of the many Smithsonians all in one lovely afternoon!
One of my favorite places that just screams DC Culture is the Kennedy Center. The amount of talent that has entered those doors is just unbelievable! From Presidents to Actors...the list is endless. If you haven't been even for just a tour I highly recommend it! And my grandfather is a tour guide so obviously I think he is the best :)
Saturday night my fiance and I had a date night at the Kennedy Center to see a show I have now seen 3 times...The LION KING. I can't get enough of this show. The story and songs bring you back to your childhood and the costumes and choreography are simply beautiful. This was the first time Matt had seen the show and the smile on his face watching the show made my smile even bigger!
The opening song always makes me cry. It's just unreal how they bring the LION KING to life!! Whether it's family night, date night, or girls night...I HIGHLY suggest checking the show out. It was such a great night. And get their early to have a drink by the fountains!
