  • I went to two tours in Georgetown last spring during WalkingTown DC- one on the history of the canal and one looking at famous movie sites in that area. They were both fantastic! This time around, I am planning on going to Civil War to Civil Rights and Brookland: A Historic Overview. I would also like to swing by the by the rock and roll themed biking tour. I moved to DC recently and WalkingTown DC is a great way to explore the many unique neighborhoods.

  • I don’t see it on this fall’s list, but the Logan Circle tour is really good – I also enjoyed the Capitol City Market tour. I may do the Spanish Stroll or Historic Brookland tour this time.
