With quite a busy schedule between work, school, and Miss DC pageant preparation, a quick break to step outside and walk around a landmark is truly a treat! It may not be a flight to a Florida beach or even a thrill-seeking adventure to Six Flags, but my little staycation to Meridian Hill Park, a DC landmark – which in total was just two hours – was a blast.
According to the National Park Service, Meridian Hill Park was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1994, as an outstanding accomplishment of early 20th-century Neoclassicist park design in the United States. Beyond its architectural feat, the park is an absolutely gorgeous and romantic refuge tucked away from the National Mall.
Located in northwest Washington, D.C., Meridian Hill Park is bordered by 16th, Euclid, 15th, and W Streets. On this particular Sunday night, there was quite a bit of art to take in! We found a real-life Fiddler on the Roof and a fantastic drum circle.
DC is such a beautiful city!
