d.c. plans
posted by soe 1:34 am

So… it occurs to me that I’ve lived in D.C. for more than six years now, and there still remain a number of places that I’ve been meaning to visit all this time, but, for one reason or another, have not. Earlier this year, I crossed the Library of Congress off my list, but far too many still remain.

I feel like if I publicly announce what those things are I stand a shot of actually doing them. And maybe some of you will want to do them with me.

Here, in no particular order, are ten D.C.-area places I’d like to see or things I’d like to do:

  1. Rent a canoe or kayak and paddle around on the C&O Canal.
  2. Hike around Teddy Roosevelt Island.
  3. Watch a classic movie at American City Diner.
  4. Visit Mount Vernon and Monticello.
  5. Head up to Bengie’s for a triple feature on the nation’s largest drive-in screen.
  6. Climb up to the top of the National Cathedral’s bell tower. (This one may have to wait until 2010, as it seems I’ve just missed this spring’s open tower event.)
  7. Catch a Bowie BaySox and a Potomac Nationals game.
  8. Investigate the Spy Museum, the Shakespeare Library, the National Aquarium, the National Archives, and the Natural History Museum. (Yes, I realize lumping them all in one may defeat the purpose of a numbered list.)
  9. Go swing dancing at Glen Echo.
  10. Tour Arlington National Cemetery.

Can you think of other things I should add to my list?
