The New York Times recently published their list of 52 places to go in 2016. Washington, DC made the list (#26) along with other great cities like Mexico City and Dublin.
It’s always nice to have some light shine on our beloved city! … However, DC’s local free weekly, The Washington City Paper, threw some shade on the Gray Lady’s recommendations. We’re all excited for the National Museum of African American History and Culture, but it doesn’t open until late in the year, and the only restaurant the Times mentioned, Momofuku, is one that has its main branch in New York. City Paper, which is a great source for what’s going on in DC while you’re visiting, graciously published their own list of 52 things to check out while in town, which we think is spot on.
They call out several of our favorite theaters, including Studio and Folger, both of whom have terrific shows featured in the Jan-Mar 16 release of our quarterly ebook Just the Ticket: An Insider’s Guide to Great Evenings Out in Washington DC, and Woolly Mammoth which is another of our favorites that I’m sure we’ll give space to in future releases of the ebook.
Did you see either of the lists, Times or City Paper? What did you think?
