A Runner’s Guide to The Best Jogging Routes in Washington, D.C.

The Embassy Row Hotel ~

Running Route

Pack your running shoes for your next trip to Washington, D.C. because running is no stranger to the nation’s capital. Recently named the “Fittest City in America,” the award is credited to the number of parks in D.C., bike lanes, farmers’ markets, and overall healthiness of the population. On your drive from the D.C. airport to our Dupont Circle hotel, you’ll be mesmerized by all the people running, walking, biking, and even rollerblading. Of course, we’re advising you to pack your shoes now because you’ll be inspired once you get here. We’ve mapped (and personally ran) these jogging routes in Washington, D.C. Let us know what you think about it…

Adventure is our Specialty at Stowe Mountain Lodge

Stowe Mountain Lodge® ~

As the leader of the Recreation Team at Stowe Mountain Lodge, I am constantly thinking of the most effective ways to facilitate participation in all of the amazing activities that Stowe offers our guests.

My goal is for visitors of Stowe Mountain Lodge to embrace the Vermont mountain lifestyle, even if it only serves as a brief respite from their normal, day-to-day, urban lives.

This summer, I am excited about our weekly adventure specials and featured activities. The goal of this offering is to assist guests of Stowe Mountain Lodge in experiencing all of the unforgettable activities in the greater Stowe area, without the hassle of dealing with the logistics of planning an outing.

Activities featured on a week-to-week basis will vary, but will include things such as rock climbing, guided hiking, trail running, fly fishing, or even stand up paddleboarding,  just to name a few.

Residents of Stowe know what an amazing location this is for outdoor adventure. My goal is that guests of Stowe Mountain Lodge are also able to experience the fulfillment of spending an unforgettable day outdoors. It will certainly make that Vermont craft brew or farm-to-table meal at the end of the day taste that much better. That’s a guarantee!

See you on the mountain!

Farm to Table Dining at Stowe Mountain Lodge-Same As It Ever Was!

Stowe Mountain Lodge® ~

The appeal of farm-to-table cuisine nationwide is significant. However, as a Chef in Vermont, this is nothing new. We have been doing it  for years. Afterall, we are in “farm country”. 

 In more rural areas, I can see this being called a “movement” because of the change of products coming to markets and restaurants utilizing different ingredients.  In New England, we cherish the local ingredients when they are available and mourn them when they go.

 Some guests come to dine with us in June or July and are wondering why we do not use heirloom, native tomatoes.  In Northern Vermont our tomato season peaks during late August and early September. I will buy as many local tomatoes as I can and prepare them for the fall and winter season, then respect the ever-changing cycle of the seasons when they will return. 

 Here at  Stowe Mountain Lodge, I seek out dozens of local farmers, cheese makers, syrup makers, etc.  My menus are constantly changing because of these men and women tilling the land and harvesting their crops when the product is at its best.  My hope as a New England Chef is that this “farm to table movement” will evolve to something that is just common place for all.  We can achieve this by utilizing the foods of our region and respecting the season in which they are grown. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

San Diego Activities for Small Groups On The Island

Paradise Point ~

Named the 5th best meeting destination in the U.S. by Cvent, San Diego is the go-to gathering spot for groups of all kinds – reunions, conferences, weddings, executive retreats, incentive trips, galas and more.  And when you meet in a city that typically has over 300 days of sunshine per year, you can bet a little time will be spent outside the boardroom. Not too long ago, our friends at The Event Team shared their top San Diego activities for small groups who want to get out and experience America’s Finest City, but some groups prefer to stay put to save time and money on transportation costs. Groups looking to keep things simple should pick a host venue like Paradise Point that offers an array of options on site. Here are the most popular small group activities available across Paradise Point’s 44 acres:

El Patio in Rockville

At The Embassy Row Hotel on Embassy Row in Washington, D.C., naturally we want to embrace the culture of all countries and learn more about their traditions.

The Flavor of Uruguay

Less than a 15 minute walk from The Embassy Row Hotel, the Embassy of Uruguay sits on I Street next to several Asian restaurants. When it comes to finding Uruguayan meals in Washington, D.C., the country’s diplomats have no problem finding Uruguayan food.
