10 Reasons why you Should visit Washington this Fall season

Authored By Jean-Francois Brouillette

1. Autumn is the best temperature! Its not too hot neither too cold! You can wear your favorite coat while visiting the city with a delicious coffee in one hand. #lovefall #bestofbothworld

 2. The touristic high season is almost done so you don’t have to share your personal space with others or to have strangers in your beautiful pictures. #nophotobomb #bestmoment washington-promo-pic-02

3. This year is the best of all because you can live the craziness around the American election! Try to spot some crazy election poster or buy a figurine of your favorite (or least favorite) candidate. You can take lots of funny pictures with him/her or…just having the satisfaction of throwing him/her in the garbage. #hatersgonnahate #USAelection #thecapital

6. There’s a really cool parade you just can’t miss on November 12th. It’s called the Manassas Veterans Day Parade where you can see military and high school bands, pipe and drum corps team, military vehicles and some military units. It’s the perfect intrusion in the American culture and lifestyle. #paradesfan #militaryaresexy

7. Autumn = beautiful colors all around the city. It’s the perfect time visit the 337467345673 memorials of Washington and take pictures! Yep! The colors of the trees make them look even more photogenic. #washingtonispretty #autumnmaniac  Washington baniere

8. Shopping! Shopping! Shopping! Nop, we are not done with shopping! If you haven’t found all your Christmas presents in the first market we talked about, well this one is the one! This historic market is situated on Capitol Hill and you can find local farms produce, handmade arts, jewelry and other stuff from the 100 merchants while listening the music from a live band. #OMG #gonnabuyitall *See all the details here : http://easternmarket-dc.org *

9. The National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden will call upon the artistic hipster part of you and you will enjoy every second of it. Walk through the installation and try to find the huge pop art AMOR sculpture made by Robert Indiana. It’s the perfect place for a picture with your lover or best friend! #neverenough

10. We kept the best one for last. THE WHITE HOUSE! Autumn or not, you just can’t go to Washington and not see the White House. It would be like going to Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower. And don’t forget to walk all around it so you can see the front and the beautiful garden at the back! And maybe you’r gonna see the new president of the United State drinking a coffee outside! #inyourdream #whoknows yes-we-can-interstude6 copy
