This week I’m excited to finally highlight my hometown, Washington, DC. Often misunderstood, there’s a lot to love about our nation’s capital and joining us to share her top tips is Renee Sklarew, author of the newly updated The Unofficial Guide to Washington, DC.
I’ve lived in the DC Metro region for 20 years, and over that time I’ve seen the city and surrounding communities change in any number of ways. What hasn’t changed is the inherent appeal that DC has and its ability to impress even the most stoic visitor has only gotten stronger. Since there is so much to see and do in and around Washington, DC I’m thrilled that the author of The Unofficial Guide to Washington, DC agreed to join us this week to share what she loves about her hometown.
