Spring in DC: 5 Things to Do

Spring in DC: 5 Things to Do

Looking for things to do this Spring in Washington, DC?

Whether you live a few metro stops away from DC, or you’re flying across 11 time zones to see Dorothy’s Ruby Red slippers at The American History Smithsonian, I wanted to let you know about some fun things to do around DC this spring. There’s something for everyone here, from the solo spring breaker to the family of nine. After leading bike tours on the National Mall since March with Bike and Roll DC, I’ve had lots of fun meeting families from all over the world and showing them the countless wonders of the U.S. Capital.

Spring is in full swing, so check out my list of things to do in my first Bike and Roll DC piece!

That moment when a family from St. Louis comes up to you during your Bike and Roll DC tour at the Vietnam War Memorial, asking how they can sign up for a tour and they hop onto yours two days later! DC is big but small at the same time.

About Me

I’m a travel writer, trip director, communications specialist, and diversity trainer who is passionate about the intersection of social justice and technology.

My appreciation for gender empowerment stems from graduating from Wellesley College, where women’s aspirations and accomplishments were valued. I’ve studied in France and I’ve taught in public schools in Boston and San Antonio.

In 2016, I finished 27 months of service with the Peace Corps in Nicaragua, where I worked as an LGBT diversity trainer, social media manager, TEFL teacher trainer, and fundraised thousands of dollars for gender empowerment camps. Now, you might see me giving bike tours on the National Mall with DC Bike and Roll!

I’ve coordinated social media for  Wanderful, a women’s travel startup, and I’m currently a Visit.org storytelling ambassador, and I’ve written about travel, LGBTQ issues, mental health, and women’s empowerment for Go Abroad and Travel Latina. Here’s my writing portfolio. I’m also translating 11,000+ words of the Babyscripts mobile healthcare application to Spanish to reach a wider audience of Latina mothers.

I do translation work, editing, research, and social media consulting consistently and quickly. Whenever I work, I make sure everything I post goes the distance. I know the value of consistency, communication, and creativity. Everyone has a story to tell. Not only will I help you tell your story, I’ll make sure it is heard.
