Living in DC it is easy to forget all of the wonderful and most of the time free things we have to do right in our own backyard. On a recent Sunday, my husband and I had an inexpensive and fun adventure.
We started our day stopping by the Italian Store for a Baguette and some cheese. We spent less than $10 and we got to enjoy our picnic on the lawn of the Iwo Jima Memorial.
We then went next door to stroll around Arlington Cemetery.
Finally we hopped across the river to spend the afternoon at the National Zoo.
