Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the everyday schedule of waking up, chugging a cup of coffee, hoping your bus isn’t late, spending the day at the office and ultimately returning home to your favorite Netflix show. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s ridiculously easy to forget that we live in a city that people travel across the world to see.
Each semester, we are lucky enough to be able to plan a variety of activities for our students. This is not only a great way to introduce them to the city, but it’s also a great way for us to enjoy touristy activities as well. One of our recent activities has been a visit to the Newseum. It’s easy to spend the entire day here and in fact, the first time I visited, I did. They have everything from a welcoming and helpful staff to breathtaking views of the city from the rooftop to an amazing selection of exhibits. I find that this place is perfect for everyone, so next time you have family in town, impress them with this treasure.
