Wanderlust Staycation

I'm planning my "Wanderlust Staycation". 
Bella, helping me plan
This is my last week of school. There's so much going on, I don't know where to naturally, I'll begin with summer plans. I was disappointed because I didn't have a week long beach trip planned. Things weren't lining up for me and I was getting sad answering the question, "What are you doing this summer?"  I decided I'm creating my own staycation. I'm calling it the "Wanderlust Staycation" and currently I'm asking for suggestions from local friends for day trips or fun activities around Loudoun County, Virginia which is outside of Washington DC. I've lived here for seventeen years and there's so much to do and see. Right now, I'm gathering suggestions and soon I'll be making a map of my summer. I know that I want to discover new (to me) places. I want to explore and see new things. I love going by myself or with a friend. Places, where I can write, are a plus since I want to write a lot this summer.  Finally, I'd like to push myself to try new things and have new experiences. Suggestions have already begun pouring in and I'm excited...
So far, I'm going to see Rent in DC. I will definitely be trying goat yoga and getting myself to the Newseum.

That spirit has always stayed with me and I'm hoping it makes me brave enough to try lots of new things.  Suggestions are welcome! Where should I go? What should I do? Who's coming with me?
