Despite what a certain presidential candidate might think, there are plenty of things making D.C. great right now. Great tacos. Great yoga studios. Great salons to get great haircuts. Even great sports teams (we still love you, Nats). That’s why we asked Express readers to vote for their favorite places in the D.C. area for our eighth annual Best Of issue. For the first time, we also asked the people who are making D.C. great to tell us what they love most about This Town. They shared the kind of D.C. day they dream about, where the weather is perfect, the farmers market is always open and the museums are free (-er than normal, that is). Follow their itineraries, or tell us about your own perfect day in D.C. on Twitter at @WapoExpress.
