I didn’t strike actual gold, BUT I did discover this hidden little treasure in Washington. I use the term “discover” loosely, as others have come before me, but it was new to me! I give you….Yard’s Park!
I was convinced to make the journey ALL THE WAY to the Navy Yard Metro Stop *yep I even switched trains* with wine…not just wine…a wine tasting outside event titled, “Drink The District”. It didn’t take that much convincing.
The event was incredible! There were tables of wine, food trucks, and beautiful young fun people! SERIOUSLY, Where do you people hang out on normal Fridays? I WANT TO GO THERE! But as much as I enjoyed the fermented grapes and my new found best friends, that’s not what sold me on the gem…it was the actual park! From the gorgeous walkway to the view of the river from the oh so inviting green grass, I want to go on a picnic, watch a sunset, borrow someone’s dog and take them on a walk..it’s perfection! It is by far my FAVORITE place in Washington! I think I finally found my Happy Place in this city!
