Determination in D.C.

“Determine that the thing can and shall be done, and then we shall find the way.” – Abraham Lincoln

Determination is the key to many things in life. For example, finding fun things to do this summer is possible, if you just put your mind to it! Making your summer a memorable one can be done by using the My Explore Hertz NeverLost Mobile Companion. My Explore is a travel guide for your iPhone and it can help you find some of the best things to do in various cities. For instance, if you’re in Washington, D.C. then you can guide yourself around the captial of the United States from the palm of your hand!

D.C. Delights

One of the features of the My Explore application is the “Neighborhoods” feature. This can be really convenient for people wanting to try new things all around the captial..especially when it comes to trying new food! If you find yourself in West End, then Marcel’s French Belgian Restaurant would be an excellent place for you to have a fine dining experience. Are you in Capitol Hill and in need of a quick bite? If so, then Taqueria Nacionale is the place for you! Finally, if you’re in Georgetown, then the 1789 restaurant is where you should go. 1789 was chosen by readers of Gourmet magazine as one of America’s Top Tables and it sounds really enjoyable!

Washingon, D.C. is full of amazing events! If you’re into the music scene and you don’t mind paying for your pleasure, then the concerts that are going on would be perfect for you. Coldplay will be in D.C. on July 8th and 9th and there will also a be a “Heart and Soul 2012 Tour” on July 27th that features Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks.
