The intern’s guide to summer in Washington

Welcome, intern class of 2014. We're here to provide you with an orientation, of sorts, for making the most of your time and money here in the nation's capital.

→ Five things you must do if you're only here for the summer

You're in Washington during the sweatiest, most humid months of the year. But don't let that slow you down.

→ Late-night eats

Because when you're an intern, you stay out late. And when you stay out late, you get hungry.

→ $1 drinks during happy hour

Washington can be an expensive place to drink, but not at these seven bars.

→ Cheap lunches

When you want something that's more exciting than a sandwich (and still cheap), go here.

→ Cheap theater

Even on an intern's budget, there are plenty of opportunities to experience the region's lively theater scene.

→ Cheap art

With so much free and cheap art in the Washington area, picking what to see can prove overwhelming.

→ All-ages entertainment

Over 21? Under 21? At these places, it doesn't matter.


→ Bottomless brunches

Because after working hard all week, you deserve a bottomless mimosa or bloody mary.
