Rosslyn O2 Outdoor Office
I pretty much tell you guys every damn day how much I love Rosslyn, BUT.. let me tell you how much I love Rosslyn ha. Maybe it helps that our apartment views are of Georgetown, and that I used to run around Rosslyn as a tiny nugget, but honestly– I hear from a lot of people that they too love the Rossiland. Even the boo, who lived in D.C. for like 14 years, is now on team Rosslyn and finds it to be quite a pleasant place to live (not that he wouldn’t also love to still be living in Dupont ha).
Rossi-land is such a perfect, quiet bubble of mini-city life, just over the bridge from Georgetown (my other great love), with easy access to all of the great D.C. spots. It has parks, cute coffee shops, running/bike trails, and all of the essentials you could need, like Target, District Taco, Paint Nail Bar (just opened!), and Lava Barre.
Walk or bike along the river, on the Mt. Vernon trail; picnic at Roosevelt Island (technically D.C. but an easy walk if you live in Rossi); lounge in the secluded space of Freedom Park, take in the view from the “View of DC” observation deck; grab a beer in the Continental beer garden (and sip by a fire-pit); shop the (seasonal) farmers market in the main plaza; enjoy a rooftop dining experience at Sfoglina; walk across the Key Bridge into neighboring Georgetown; find your work flow in Gateway Park
..in the new physically-distant outdoor office space:
How kute is this?! I didn’t even capture the full space in these photos (woops ha). There’s another section of the park with work spots set up, AND you can enjoy sitting on the lawn if you choose (WiFi works there too).
The Brand Guild definitely prettied-up the space, and it’s a MUCH NEEDED change of scenery for me from the cramped/noisy home-office.
AND, Rosslyn is running restaurant specials for O2 guests– @NandosUSA is giving guests free appetizers when you pick up the discount card at the check-in desk!
