"Falls Church, VA — W&OD" by kerrycrow.
Archer Hotel Falls Church is a half-hour’s drive to the heart of the U.S. capital, with access to Metrorail’s McLean Orange and Silver Lines. Washington, D.C., is ripe with historic places to visit: The Smithsonian Institution alone boasts 17 museums, galleries and a zoo. Reserve a ticket for (no need to sneak in) the International Spy Museum, catch a free show at the Kennedy Center and power shop in downtown’s signature CityCenterDC neighborhood. Splurge at the Inn at Little Washington (the metropolitan area’s only 3 Star Michelin restaurant), enjoy oysters at Old Ebbitt Grill (D.C.’s oldest bar) or savor Neo-Neapolitan pizza (or a panini or house-made pasta) at Stellina Pizzeria.
