Thank you Ross, Communications Career Counselor at Elon, for pointing out this awesome new site to me!
Design*Sponge is a great blog that happens to have a series of city guides. I took a peek at the DC guide and was thrilled to find it neatly broken up into various popular neighborhoods: Adam’s Morgan, Dupont Circle, Georgetown, and Old Town Alexandria were some of the bigger ones. Now at least I have an idea of where to start when I move to Alexandria next week.
They also have a section called “Product Guides” with great lists like picnic accessories for under $100, jewelry storage for under $100, and luggage ideas. There’s even a DIY section with great activities like this portable sunshade. Definitely a cool site to check out for lots of ideas!
