Washington DC Monuments by Moonlight Tour by Trolley

Washington DC looks spectacular when lit up at night, so make the most of your time in the city by going on an evening tour on an open-air trolley. Going on an organized tour saves time working out local public transport, and means you can learn along the way through guide commentary. Tick off lots of top landmarks such as the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Washington Memorial, and more.

I get it. It’s been tough spending so much time inside cooped up and not going out during the COVIS-19 pandemic. But are you really longing for the smell of fermenting sewage? Are you happy about negotiating crowds during this time? Is it fun watching people clearly disobey social distancing rules and wearing mask of questionable utility and below their noses? Then you’ve come to the right place. I will say however that there are security officers that appear to be doing a very good job at preventing people from coming in to the area without masks and trying to assist them in social distancing, but that’s not sufficient. If you’re willing to put up with these inconveniences, then a visit to the fishmarket is in your future.

There are a number of shops, some below street level. The guys dishing our the product are colorful characters. Fun visit.

I would have loved to have a place to have bought some fresh seafood and gone to cook. It looked like there were places to buy food and lines so it must be good.

I was glad to see that this Fish Market is still there. Way back in the 1970s, we used to come here and buy our Crabs and Fish, particularly during Summer time. Crabs ( live and steamed ones), lots of shrimps of varying sizes, different types of fish are for sale here. Some vendors sell seafood soups and fried chicken combo meals, etc. There are some tables and chairs to eat them near the vendors. I was tempted to buy a dozen of crabs ($18 for Medium size) and fresh fish to take home, but changed my mind since they might smell in the bus/Metro that I was riding home. Note: This Fish Market is located next to the WHARF where there are restaurants, Theater, Ice Rink, Amphitheater, etc that can be visited.

Sometimes it's just a matter of having the right food at the right time. I had been out the night before at my buddy's retirement dinner, and after having laughed, drank, and sucked down cigar smoke for hours, my throat needed some adjustment. I either was nursing a hangover or dodging the flu. Clam chowder sounded great. But... when cutting through DC, where can you just walk up and get chowder? That's right, Maine Avenue. The area's a good bit more gentrified than it was the last time I was there. Because I was an outer suburbs kid who left the area in 1991, and whose local family went down to the Bay, this means the last time was... maybe when Bush was President. No, the first one. The prices are up some- hey, business is still good and it was crowded on that cloudy, cold morning. I think I will have to get back more often. So I knocked back a quart of clam chowder from one barge, a cup of the lobster bisque at another, and was contemplating some "Louisiana Style" crawfish when I reminded myself I was illegally parked and I better get the heck out of there. Which I did. Parking is the huge weakness of this place. What I remember WAS the parking lot has a gleaming condo tower sitting on it. There were a total of six slots, which needed to be paid for via some smartphone app I hadn't heard of. I was out of my car, got my soup, finished it, got seconds, and was out of there before I got the app to work. Sorry, not sorry. You can't eat atmosphere, but it does help the food.
