Smokey Bear – 48 Hours in D.C.

When you only have 48 hrs in DC, these are the must-sees on a fall weekend:
🍂🍁
.

1. VISIT Smokey Bear exhibit at the Smithsonian National Zoo
.
2. SEE National Children’s Museum (thank you @crystalbowyer for the invite to serve on your experience board)
.
3. GET a tour of the Capitol! (Grateful to our friend and fav news anchor @tanjababich for the private tour)
.
4. STAY (CN Travellers World’s Best)Welcomed with surprise room welcome gifts at our crush hotel @thelinehotel thank you @ismatu.daramy .

5. EAT at the oldest (and best designed) saloon in D.C. @oldebbitt .

6. EXPERIENCE the Library of Congress (it was so surreal to see where our camps books are officially registered)
.
7. WALK The Ellipse in President’s Park to see the Boy Scout Memorial .

The surprise cherry on top was the kindness of a stranger who gave us VIP passes for the @nationals#WorldSeriesChampions Parade. (We discovered he is a VP at the event planning firm). We could not have cut through the 500,000 parade route visitors if it were not for your kindness (and magic access badges)- thx @hargroveexp

Our speed trip was to witness a historic event – the grand opening gala of the brand new @NationalChildrensMuseum (off Pennsylvania Ave near The White House). Congrats to @hahnst of @ogilvy485 for making us all at @ogilvychicago with @gusadel look good – and DO good – with your amazing design work – for a place that really deserves it.
