Eric Kincaid, Convention Sales Manager

Eric Kincaid

What do you love most about working at Destination DC?

The people! Everyone takes pride in their job and truly has a passion for Washington, DC. I also like the internal perks we receive from Capital Bikeshare, gym reimbursement and of course all of the exclusive events we get to attend in the city.

What is your favorite thing to do in the nation’s capital?

Running on the National Mall. It never gets old to me! I also like to try all of the new restaurants and bars.

What’s the best thing you’ve ever eaten in the city?

This is a tough one as I have many, but two of my current favorites are the roast chicken from Kinship and mezzi rigatoni with fennel sausage ragu and pecorino Romano from the Red Hen.

In three words, describe what Washington, DC means to you?

Inventive. Global. Incubator.

If there’s one thing every first-time traveler should do when here, what is it?

Visit the historic Ben’s Chili Bowl on U Street and try a famous half-smoke with a side of chili.
