    dc is great because there are so many free things to do, plus there are a lot of really great restaurants. if you come in march, you might be here for cherry blossom festival, which is beautiful. in that case however, hotels will be a lot more expensive and the city gets crowded (it’s usually at the end of march/beginning of april).

    @Brianalaura:

    COME TO NYC!!!!  We loooove Canadians! <3

    Go to the Central Park Zoo and traverse the city from the Park.  Check out the Time Warner building, grab lunch at somewhere amazing (bf works as a chef so I’m biased so won’t name restaurants) catch a broadway show, do some shopping in Chinatown then head over to Little Italy for dinner!  See Brooklyn and the amazing aquarium and botanical gardens, check out Lady Liberty and South Street Seaport, do some shopping in Tribeca…go to the museums!!

    Sorry – I LOVE NY!

    I voted DC because of the cherry blossoms. NYC is still kinda gross that time of year.

    I’m a bit biased because I live in DC, but the weather will be warmer and there are lots of free things (zoos, museums, etc…); as well as romantic things to do like dinner cruises down the river, cute B&Bs/hotels, etc… It’s a quick trip to Alexandria; and you can even get to NYC easily and inexpensively ($20 for a 4.5 hr bus ride). Good luck!

    @Brianalaura:actually that bar closed a couple of weeks ago! supposedly they’re reopening under a new name, but i’m not sure if they’ve done so yet.

    eta: nevermind…it reopened as the bier baron. they’re supposed to have the same beer list.
