If you’re in the the DMV area I highly recommend going to harborfest next year. This event allows you to get on a historical ship, but your not allowed to take food on board, just in case you were enjoying a chocolate dipped cheesecake like me and had to hurry and eat it and throw the rest in the trash to not get left behind by your friends. I can’t explain enough just how much I love food and I came with a empty belly and I left really happy and tipsy. It’s so many different varieties of cuisine to choose from so I wouldn’t worry about not finding anything to eat. The energy and people were all so happy and I felt very secure knowing that security was everywhere.
I parked in the Mall garage, which was only 2 dollars. The walk isn’t that bad especially for parking to be that cheap.
