VINNY has had an ongoing love affair with D.C. ever since he came here to study politics at The Catholic University of America in 2013. He currently works for the historic Octagon Museum downtown (a must-see!). His favorite thing to do around town is to walk with no end destination in sight. He always manages to discover hidden treasures.
Where would you take an out-of-town visitor and why? "(Surprise surprise!) - I would take outside visitors to The Octagon because of its dynamic history. It has American political history, architectural history, and a history of (alleged) hauntings. There’s truly something in it for everyone! It’s also interesting how the history and development of D.C. is mirrored through the history of the house."
