Our first of two days in the capital included night bike rides through the neighborhoods, a visit to The White House and seeing the monuments lit up at night.
This weekly series focuses on accommodation gems we discover while on the road. This week: Hotel Helix in Washington, DC.
We escaped the hurricane by driving west from D.C. instead of heading to the beaches of North Carolina. An excellent decision, as we had a sunny day and a drive through some spectacular scenery!
With the extreme weather of Hurricane Irene and the opening of the Martin Luther King, Jr.memorial, we have had an interesting NYC2NOLA Road Trip day in the U.S. Capital.
