OWLS TAKE OVER THE CAPITOL

WASHINGTON, DC – It’s almost impossible to find a cheesesteak, but Washington DC is a nice change of pace from life in Philadelphia. Exploring a new city is always fun, but it’s more of a workout when you’re doing it with fellow tour guides! Finding something to do in our nation’s capital was incredibly easy on a college budget. Luckily most of the museums around DC offer free admission so a convenient place to thaw out and warm up during our cold walks across the lawn. Of course, the one museum I have been dying to go to, the Newseum, charges admission but I can say it is definitely worth a visit! Inside the Newseum has specialized exhibits which help capture the nation’s history through journalism. It’s not everyday you get to touch segments of the Berlin wall or sift through hundreds of actual newspapers dating back to the beginning of the printing press.  If you’re like me and sometimes find museums overwhelming, fortunately tickets to the Newseum are valid for two days so you can come back and “go live” again in the museum’s interactive newsroom. You can see the “live” clip from my visit to the Newseum with Shay and Maura down below.
