WHO: Host of Great Day Wash­ing­ton. ON THE WA­TER: “The scenery at the Ge­orge­town wa­ter­front (3303 Wa­ter St. NW, 202-895-6000; george­town­wa­ter­front­park.org) epit­o­mizes what the Wash­ing­ton area is all about, with the Kennedy Cen­ter, the Po­tomac, and the fall fo­liage in the back­drop. There are also so many great restau­rants to en­joy down there.” PARK EVANGELISM: “Hey, Amer­ica, DC has a park too! You can find me at Rock Creek Park (nps.gov/rcor) any given week­end in the fall, rid­ing my bike or tak­ing a hike with my hus­band and son. Rock Creek Park is my per­sonal heaven on earth.” AT THE MOVIES: “I’m a movie lover, and the At­lantic Plumb­ing Build­ing (807 V St. NW, 202-534-1965; land­mark­the­atres.com) is my go-to when I want to take in a good film and re­lax with my friends and fam­ily. It’s a bou­tique the­ater with re­clin­ing seats and de­cent food.” MU­SEUM MUST: “The Na­tional Mu­seum of African Amer­i­can His­tory and Cul­ture (1400 Con­sti­tu­tion Ave. NW, 844-7503012; nmaahc.si.edu) is hands-down one of my new fa­vorite places in DC. The his­tory and cul­ture is so thought­ful and touch­ing—not to men­tion the amaz­ing food in the Sweet Home Café. But what grips me ev­ery time I pass by is the amaz­ing ar­chi­tec­ture.” @mar­ket teshep­pard; mar­ketteshep­pard.com
