Start your day at the Salt Line. This New England-inspired restaurant has a clean and marine aesthetic. Get reservations for brunch and order a jaw-dropping, gravity-defying Perfect Storm Bloody Mary. It is both a culinary and architectural masterpiece. Make sure to add it to your Instagram story!

Walk off brunch with jaunt around the National Mall. Start by taking in the Capitol’s rotunda before making your way to the obelisk Washington Monument. From there, gaze at the Roman-style Lincoln Memorial. From the Lincoln, head toward the White House and take in the French Second Empire-style Eisenhower building next to the White House. It houses 553 rooms and two miles of black and white tiled corridors. (Fun fact: It was originally considered a monstrosity and compared to an asylum.)

Support local artists and instead of buying from the museum gift shop, pick up a poster from Victory Dance Creative. Artist Anthony Dihle created a bright and funky neighborhood series so you can order one that reminds you of your trip and brings a little bit of D.C. design to your home.
