DC is a changing city. There’s no doubt about that. I was talking with a friend about this earlier, and the conversation about what’s been happening in the city over the past few years seeded the idea of creating a space in for travelers.
Hosting out-of-towners would be a cool way to network with interesting people. I just recently got into blogging. It didn’t take me long to discover that there’s a whole subculture of travel bloggers out there. Many of you are bored of the usual Holiday Inn type of experience. Here’s your chance to stay with locals and get a taste of what it’s really like to live in the Nation’s capital.
Adventure seeking travelers will definitely want to check out DC. On the surface, it’s a bourgeoisie business town with world famous monuments and museums.
The upper crust bars and restaurants are definitely worth it if you have cash to spend, but there’s also plenty of seedy bars and a growing underground music scene to investigate if you’re on a budget. Our location on the H Street corridor puts you right on the borderline of two worlds. If you want to play it safe, there’s plenty to do if you head west. If you’re feeling adventurous, venture out east toward Bladensburg road. I’ll cover both options in blog posts to come, so stay tuned for that.
If you want to go out and explore yourself, we’ll stay out of your hair. But if you are in need of tour guides we will happily show you some night life or out-of-the-way things to do that most tourists miss.
When you’re not out exploring, you’ll have access to a fully equipped art studio. Our living room converts into a great spot for writing. We’re also thinking about buying a conversion kit for our vintage typewriter, which will allow it to connect to a laptop or tablet. Additionally we’re working on a wine list, and you can take advantage of delicious home cooking during your stay.
