The good news is traveling across the city is like 30 mins tops

You should definitely make it to a Nats game since you’re going to be in Navy Yard.
It goes without saying, you should visit the National Mall and see all the monuments
There are also plenty of museums to visit - the spy museum is a good one
Go to the Wharf - not far from where you are at all. Lots of restaurants there. You can also visit the fish market there.
Old Town Alexandria is across the river in Virginia but has its own feel and is definitely worth visiting
If you have a car and are willing to venture outside the city I would try and go to the Baltimore Aquarium
I would also try to make it over to Annapolis at some point

Pe associate working at UMM fund. Need to give firm a decision on if I want to do senior associate year by end of the month. Pay is ~$400-450K.

I want to switch to tech startup (unrelated to what I do now, as I invest in healthcare, industrials, consumer). Is it worth it to stay the 3rd year ? Kind of want to save up a lot of cash, but feel like it’s not doing much from a learning perspective
