A Touch of Teal
A Touch of Teal is the passion project of Katie Urban, where she writes about the things she loves and documents her life. One of the subjects she happens to love is D.C.! Her stunning blog is filled with some great insider tips about places to go and eat both in D.C. as well as in Arlington (about a mile from D.C.). Especially check her out if you’re interested in wines!

Do DC with Kids
Do DC with Kids was started by Tina in 2016, only three months after she moved there. Her goal is to create a guide for both visitors as well as locals, that highlights a great many family-friendly small businesses, attractions, and activities in D.C. And so far, she is doing a pretty great job! Check out her visitor’s guide for some great places to visit with your children.
The HungryLobbyist was started by, you guessed it, a lobbyist! One with a passion for food that is. Originally just a D.C. restaurant blog, they have since included Politics, Fashion, DC Events and more to their repertoire. They have a satirical and ironic tone that gives their articles a certain edge. Still, their site is a must visit for the foodies among you, we guarantee that there is something for everyone!

The DC Darlings is run by best friends Molly and Katerina, who share both stories about fashion, beauty and their favorite spots in D.C.
