Photo Recap: 11th Annual DC Travel & Adventure Show - Day 1

Talk about perfect timing: The nation's capital just wrapped up another week of cold temperatures, icy roads and snow. I don't know about you, but all I could think about was getting away. Enter the 11th annual DC Travel & Adventure Show to the rescue. The popular travel show returned to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center for the first of two days, to remind us that sometimes getting away is "where it's at."

Just in case you missed all the fun yesterday, there's still time to catch up. The show returns today with special guest appearances by Rick StevesSamantha Brown and Patricia Schultz, as well as lots of activities, food and fun/romantic getaway opportunities. Time to start packing!
