When you think of Washington DC, you usually think of government, politics and a serious city life. However if you live in the area, you know its much more than that. The United States capital is such a vibrant, walkable city that’s great for locals and tourists a like. Theres so much to do, eat, and see that autumn time in DC is a great place to be. Rhyming not intentional but natural. (I make myself laugh.)

With that said, here are some of my favorite places to view the changing of colors and season in Washington DC:
