Continuing Day 1 with our visitors:
After our tour of Arlington Cemetery, we road the metro to Rosslyn then grabbed a free Georgetown Shuttle to M Street in Georgetown. First stop: lunch at Good Stuff Eatery. It’s become our go-to place. and we’ve been to both the Georgetown and Capitol Hill restaurants frequently. The staff always delivers consistently, delicious food and the service is quick and friendly. How can you go wrong with the best burgers in DC (I get the ‘shroom veggie burger), rosemary french fries and yummy shakes. My favorite is the salted caramel.
Feeling stuffed and satisfied, we headed over to the second highest observation point in DC. The Washington Memorial is still under renovations so the Old Post Office tower is the next best view. It didn’t disappoint!

The interior looks lonely right now but The Old Post Office will be soon be transformed into The Trump International Hotel due to open in 2016.

If you’re in DC during the next couple of weeks, be sure to visit the Old Post Office Tower before it undergoes renovations. And I highly recommend Good Stuff Eatery if you’re a fan of Burgers, Fries and a Shakes. Besides Georgetown and Capitol Hill, they are also located in Crystal City in Northern Virginia.
