#66 Visit All 50 States (Virginia/Washington, D.C.)

Completed With: Delta Phi Lambda Sorority, Incorporated

Completed On: Thursday, August 9 – Sunday, August 12

My sorority had our annual convention in Herndon, VA this year. It was a small Virginia town right outside of Washington, D.C. Since we were busy with Convention, I didn’t really see much of Herndon. I think I spent the entire weekend in the hotel.

I did see the Dulles Airport. It was pretty confusing. The train in the airport that takes you to the terminals is nothing compared to the one at Hartsfield-Jackson. It had a light up floor that hurt my eyes. I guess that was kind of cool though. We stayed at the Dulles Hyatt, which was a really nice hotel. They recently renovated so everything is very technologically fancy. The staff there is amazing too. They really go above and beyond to try to meet all of your needs. They were awesome!

On our last day, we ventured out to Washington, D.C. before heading home. My group went to a Dim Sum place in Chinatown. Then we walked around to see the different monuments. We didn’t get to the White House though. We also looked around the Air and Space Museum for a bit. I didn’t know that all of the museums in D.C. were free admission. Very helpful tip. It’s beautiful in D.C. and the streets are easily named. It’s also hard to get lost because you can always redirect yourself using a museum or monument.

Hopefully, I’ll get to go back to see the White House and try out the metro or something. Other than that, my trip wasn’t very eventful.
