Yesterday my roommates and I went to Washington D.C. for the day. We visited the National Zoo, viewed the monuments, and went the the Museum of Natural History. Not only is D.C a cool place to go it also is pretty cheap if you do it right. We drove to the New Carrollton Metro Station and took the metro into the city. Parking only cost $5 for the day and we only spend $10 on a metro card. The only other money I spent was for food at one of the many delicious food trucks all over the city. It was a very fun trip and if you have not been I highly recommend it for something fun to do on the weekends that does not break your wallet!
