My name is Amanda Shoemaker – Welcome to My Forgotten Favorite!

This blog serves as a space to feature neglected, obscure, under-appreciated, quirky and amazing people, places, ideas and basically anything else I’m in raptures over at the moment.

Amanda - Hiking PM

For several years now, I’ve been procrastinating percolating on starting this project and finally decided to just jump in and start.

Nearly every weekend, my partner and I drive out from the city to see nature centers, parks, historic sites, art galleries, wineries and/or just something new. There are so many fantastic, beautiful and generally inexpensive places to visit and things to do in the DC area, I always find more possibilities than we can ever accomplish. Sailing, hiking, climbing, seeing – we try out as many as we can.

Along with my obsession for passionate, talented women and explorers of every stripe, I hope to share my adventures and loves with others.

And I know My Forgotten Favorite needed to be.

Please feel free to let me know your thoughts and any ideas for excursions or reviews, I would be more than happy to cover them.

I hope you enjoy!

    Amanda is also a wonderful manager. 🙂

    I love what I’m seeing and I will definitely be keeping my eye on the “Plan Your Adventures” section. 🙂 I have so many resources and opportunities for fun right outside my door, and I want to start taking advantage of them!
