WalkingTown DC 2016: Coming September 17-25

CHECK BACK IN AUGUST FOR UPDATES!

Grab your walking shoes and get ready for Washington, DC's best public tour program featuring more than 50 guided walking tours in neighborhoods throughout the District.  This popular annual event takes place in the month of September and introduces residents and visitors to the art, culture, and history of Washington, DC through a series of "bite-size" lunchtime tours, after-work "happy hour" tours, and longer weekend tours. 

From Congress Heights to Herring Hill, St. Paul's Rock Creek Parish to Dupont Circle, WalkingTown DC connects you to well-known and unfamiliar places. Tours are led by historians, licensed tour guides, community leaders and business owners, enthusiasts and docents, who all donate their time and expertise for this annual festival.

Tours are offered at varying lengths and fitness levels, so it is easy to find a tour that is right for you. All tours require reservations and are free and open to the public.  Several tours are wheelchair and stroller accessible.

If you are a tour guide or resident who is interested in submitting your tour to be part of WalkingTown DC, call us at (202) 661-7581 for more information.
