Living in Washington, D.C. has been one of the best experiences of my life. I moved to Foggy Bottom, a short walk from Georgetown, back in June and I couldn’t be happier! I love that Washington, D.C. is full of entertainment and activities suitable for everyone. When I learned that Capella Washington D.C., Georgetown was featuring a Georgetown Staycation Package with tickets to The International Spy Museum, I knew this was an educational experience I had to try out for myself. My friend and I checked into the hotel on Friday and enjoyed dinner in The Grill Room. Then Saturday our adventure began.
We met Angel, our Capella Personal Assistant, in the main lobby entrance, where she had all our Spy Museum tour tickets and information ready to go! Angel had also arranged for a taxi to take us from the hotel to the International Spy Museum, a short 2.5 miles away from Capella.
The tour itself was incredible! We learned how espionage helped in the American Revolutionary War, Civil War, WWI and WWII and other American conflicts. My favorite part of the tour was the comprehensive exhibit of all the James Bond movies. There was definitely something for everyone — from the history buff to the film fanatic. After taking peek at all the museum had to offer, we hit up the gift shop and made our way outside where our taxi was waiting (Angel had planned ahead!).
Once we got back to the hotel we headed over to Key Bridge Boathouse. Fortunately it was the perfect day for a picnic (prepared by the hotel), and we sat under the colorful umbrellas and watched the boats, kayaks, canoes and paddle boarders set sail on the Potomac River. I would have to say it was a perfect Saturday for getting to know Georgetown just a little better.
