What do 20 year olds like doing in DC?

I'd definitely take her over to Georgetown - nice mall, good outdoor shooping as well, just a great area to walk around and explore M Street and Wisconsin Ave and to get something to eat. Could always walk up to the unversity as well.

If she's never been to DC she may want to do the basic tourist stuff... museums, Washington monument, etc. Since you've lived here before you'd probably know them all. Oh, and the Spy Museum is awesome! It's not Smithsonian though so you do have to pay to get in. But it's very fun!

In addition to Georgetown, she should check out Adams-Morgan (more funky than Gtown, lots of great restaurants, and a vibrant bar scene) as well as the Chinatown/Gallery Place area.

Hmmm...not sure about matching up that 20 year old with a "vibrant bar scene" since the drinking age is 21...:)

OK, fair enough - I thought he meant "20s". Even so, Adams Morgan has a gret energy and lots of cool restaurants.
