any people who come to D.C. make a beeline to the famed monuments and memorials and free museums. But the capital also preserves off-the-beaten-track sites equally worth one’s time. After touring the greatest hits, check out the many historic homes here (page 8). Many of these residences are preserved just as their famous homeowners left them, bringing the past to the present. While there’s always so much to do in the city, it’s also worth it to venture farther afield. Nearby towns, like Annapolis, Maryland, are fertile areas for exploration. Read all about a few of our favorite easy getaways on page 12. And don’t worry—even if you spend more than a day outside D.C., you won’t have any “fomo” or “fear of missing out.” Our calendar on page 6 is packed with so much to do, you’ll have plenty to look forward to when you do come back. So explore to your heart’s content.

‘RIGHTFULLY HERS: AMERICAN WOMEN AND THE VOTE’ The National Archives Museum’s newest exhibit in the Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery commemorates the centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment. While it explores all sides of the fight to achieve this constitutional victory, it also looks at the voting rights struggles that have persisted for millions of women beyond 1920. “Rightfully Hers” brings history forward for all generations to learn about women’s relentless political engagement for their rights.

EXECUTIVE

Washington’s architecture is stunning and imposing. And although D.C. is conservative on the surface, underneath it’s very liberal and open. Also, you can find bicycles everywhere, and I love that! D.C. is a very green city, with so many big trees that are old and beautiful.

Q: YOU’RE VERY ACTIVE ON INSTAGRAM. WHAT ARE SOME GOOD SPOTS TO CAPTURE A GREAT SELFIE? A: In front of the U.S.

Q: FOR A GUEST LOOKING FOR A NIGHT ON THE TOWN, WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND? A: I prefer Eighteenth

Street Lounge, a longrunning, very “D.C.” place, with a mix of sophistication, cosmopolitanism and “cool” with a big “C.” There are rotating and resident DJs, live music and diverse patrons. Celebrating a special occasion can also be done

Well, tickets for a U2 concert on the day of the show. A bottle of rare Grgich wine that’s impossible to find in the stores—order it from Sherry’s Wine & Spirits. But, honestly, in our profession, there are no unusual requests. Concierges are highly trained to “create the magic,” so any request (easy or challenging) is an opportunity to do so.

a towering bronze statue of the 16th U.S. president and his horse invites historic selfies. Georgetown has been a tony neighborhood to live in for over 200 years, especially if you consider Tudor Place. The 1816 manse, built for a granddaughter of Martha Washington, was designed by William Thornton, the architect of the U.S. Capitol. A domed temple portico dominates the exterior, while lush gardens burst with boxwood and flowers. The interior holds antique furniture and objects, including letters, that George and Martha Washington owned. It’s easy to imagine former slave and abolitionist Frederick Douglass expounding on equal rights from the breezy porch at his former home in D.C.’s Anacostia neighborhood. The Frederick Douglass National Historic Site offers guided tours through the 1840s stucco residence on a hilltop, where he lived from 1877 through 1895. Don’t miss artifacts like the violin he used to entertain his grand kids and rooms furnished with Victorian antiques. AUGUST 2019

ompleted soon after Washington, D.C., became the capital, the circa-1801 Octagon House famously played host to President James Madison and wife Dolley for six weeks in 1814. (The Brits had torched the nearby White House during the War of 1812.) Today, the redbrick, six-sided structure acts as headquarters for the American Institute of Architects and hosts guided tours showing off its grand stairway, antique glass windows and changing exhibits on building arts. “We are truly delighted with this retreat … the drives and walks around here are delightful,” First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln wrote in 1862, referring to the circa-1843 Gothic Revival home in present-day Petworth where she and President Abraham Lincoln spent many days during the Civil War. Now open to the public and called President Lincoln’s Cottage, the peaceful retreat where Abe met with soldiers and published the Emancipation Proclamation holds an interactive exhibit that lets visitors explore Lincoln’s wartime decision-making process.

Where Now

(CLOCKWISE FROM LEFT) BREWMASTER’S CASTLE; PRESIDENT LINCOLN’S COTTAGE; OCTAGON HOUSE

When early 20th-century Washingtonians needed a drink, they probably grabbed an Old Heurich beer. The buzzy empire created by the German immigrant, brewer and real estate mogul, Christian Heurich, funded construction of an 1892 red sandstone mansion in Dupont Circle, now open for tours as the Brewmaster’s Castle. Peep the Heurichs’ plush Victorian digs (including a Versailles-worthy music room) and snug garden, then stay for one of the frequent evening programs on beer, history or music. Though 20th-century architect Frank Lloyd Wright is known for projects like Pennsylvania’s Fallingwater and New York City’s Guggenheim Museum, he also designed a series of “Usonian” middle-class homes from the 1930s through his death in 1959. One of them, the 1940 Pope-Leighey House, has been relocated near Mount Vernon to a swath of land at Woodlawn Plantation (an 1805 manor owned by George Washington’s nephew, also open to the public). Guided tours Friday through Monday snoop inside the modest-sized gem, a squared-off wooden

structure with intricately carved windows and mod built-in furniture. When you’re visiting Arlington National Cemetery, consider heading up the hill to Robert E. Lee’s former digs, Arlington House. The columned, Greek Revival building was once home to the Confederate Army General, and it still holds family portraits (one oil painting of a young Lee suggests he was a hunk) and furnishings like a Victorian sofa set upholstered in blazing red. Toward the close of the Civil War, Union soldiers were buried on the lawn, and Lee never returned to his home. The cemetery continued to grow and eventually became the solemn national burial ground it is today. The 31 period rooms at the Daughters of the American Revolution Museum use antiques and costumed mannequins to re-create spaces from America’s varied past. Think a 1920s-style den with a rolltop desk and scarlet-red built-in bookcases or a 1770s tavern with a polished wooden table and Windsor chairs.

SAILING IN ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND

hese lazy days of summer call for hitting the road. As if in answer, sundrenched towns beckon with sailing, horseback riding and tons of charm— all just a short drive from D.C.

ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND

HARPERS FERRY, W.VA. This picturesque destination sits at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers. The Appalachian Trail runs through the tiny town, where attractions include museums and Civil War battlegrounds. Harpers Ferry National Historical Park features about 20 miles of hiking trails, and companies like River Riders offer tubing and rafting.

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND Begin the day in this charmfilled northern neighbor at Southern-style breakfast spot Miss Shirley’s Cafe,

then stroll the Inner Harbor, home to the National Aquarium, or head to Fort McHenry, birthplace of the national anthem. Don’t miss the American Visionary Art Museum, a one-of-a-kind showcase for works by selftaught creatives.

MIDDLEBURG, VIRGINIA Founded in 1787, Virginia’s “horse country” has drawn celebrity residents from Jackie Kennedy to Robert Duvall. Along the main street, find upscale boutiques and the historic Red Fox Inn & Tavern. At the posh Salamander Resort & Spa, saddle up for a trail ride, followed by the “riders’ relief” massage. The nearby National Sporting Library & Museum features equestrian-themed artwork and literature.

Anchored at the Chesapeake Bay, this Maryland capital city is naturally a boating and sailing center. The cornerstone for the domed State House building (tours offered daily) was laid here in 1772, and the narrow streets are lined with 18th- and 19th-century row houses, spindle-steepled churches and grand Georgian mansions, like the William Paca House & Garden. Restau-

rants serve up tasty local fare, helping provide fuel for shopping excursions at lovely boutiques and galleries.
