There's so much to do in Washington, D.C. but not enough time! As Washington, D.C. natives, the AFP staff wanted to make sure you made the most of your conference experience while here. That's why we put together a list of our favorite local spots for you to visit.

Check out the map of excursions below and what some of our staff have to say about their favorite spots.

The National Cathedral & Cactus Cantina

Walk around the beautiful architecture or book a tour. Then head to the Cactus Cantina for amazing Mexican food right down the street!

Ethiopian Restaurants

Did you know approximately 20% of Ethiopians living in the U.S. live in D.C.? Check out some of the restaurants around the city.

Jack Rose

My work colleagues love Jack Rose! This is a great place for those looking to take clients, especially if they’re big whiskey drinkers.

National Arboretum

I highly recommend a walk in the gardens and then visiting the bonsai museum.
