Washington, DC next week

Jump to last reply

DD will be staying at the Washington Hilton near Dupont Circle for a 4 day weekend. Planning to drive in and park the car onsite. She got a parking deal with in/out privileges for a very good price. It is 4 blocks from Dupont Circle Red Line Metro, so she will be using that a lot. Any recommendations on breakfast places near Dupont Circle? Any special places for dinner? She wants to do Old Ebbitt Grill and Tabard Inn, these were from her middle school trip and she is fond to re-visit. Any other trendy, not too terribly expensive restaurant recommendations?

She and friend will be doing the usual tourist stuff - Smithsonian museums on the Mall, art meusuems, etc.Lunch recs near the Mall? Is the on/off trolley worthwhile? Any tours you would particularly recommend? They saw a lot of the tourist sites during a school trip. Any off the beaten path stuff not to be missed? She and friend are old enough to drink, but not clubbers, so to speak. Any decent shopping in DC and where to go for trendy, not mall type clothes? Thanks!
