About Me

I’m Kelley and I have been living in Washington, DC since 2018 and in the DMV area my whole life. My husband and I are a one-car family but mostly take public transportation around the city. We have a sweet cat, a small urban garden, and a love for exploring cities – our own and around the world.

I am a full-time blogger and travel advisor. Before I quit the corporate world in 2023, I worked in marketing for 12 years – 5 of those years in hospitality. Things have changed a lot in that time. I started blogging and content marketing before Instagram, before travel influencers as we know them today, and before a robust content strategy was something Fortune 500 companies bragged about. But I hope to use what I’ve learned over the years and my love for exploring cities to bring you a Washington, DC travel resource that will help you plan memorable adventures.
