A reader wrote in asking:
“For avid readers, who would like a relatively quiet place to read, yet in a somewhat amenable location for eats and coffee, where are good locations in DC?”
I’d def. be curious to hear folks recommendations but I’d also like to expand a bit – where are the places you go to unplug in DC – if you just want to relax and breathe? Besides my go to Meridian Hill Park, when I’m on the Hill I love the Bartholdi fountain and the nearby Botanic Gardens. Where are your favorite spots to just chill (indoors and outside?) And of course for folks who like to read/study away from home – where are your go to spots?
And here’s the view from those seats pictured above:
