Things to Do In Washington DC | Restaurant Week | Washington DC Hotels
Are you a Gastronaut? You might ask, “How do I know if I’m a Gastronaut if I don’t know what a Gastronaut is?” By definition a Gastronuaut is one who travels primarily or exclusively to enjoy the restaurants and specialty foods of a region.
Here at Your DC Hotels, we love the idea of Gastro Tourism. (gastro-tourism. Recreational travel undertaken solely or primarily to experience the food and wine of a region. See also gastronaut.) Gastro Tourism not only allows the tourist to enjoy the regional foods of Washington DC but also enjoy Washington DC hotels.
Washington DC Restaurant Week is the perfect reason to take a trip into the DC area, even if you don’t consider yourself a full fledge Gastronaut.
