By Tania Anderson:

Washington, DC is one of the most interesting places on earth and I love the fact that I can share everything I've learned about my hometown with you. The nation's capital offers a ton of variety, including museums, live shows, interesting cuisine and lots of history. Oh, and definitely some great shopping.
