Get excited...registration is now open for WalkingTown DC 2014!

WalkingTown DC is here and back with more than 50 tours showcasing the arts, culture and heritage of Washington's diverse neighborhoods. These tours are led by professional guides, community leaders, historians, and others who volunteer their time and expertise to share the richness of DC neighborhoods.

City explorers get a chance to tour the neighborhood in a variety of one-of-a-kind experiences. Whether it's during lunchtime, after-work, or over the weekend — there's a tour in store for you! So what are you waiting for? Grab your walking shoes and join us next month for a walking experience of the Nation's Capital.

Several exciting, new tours this fall include:

  • DC By the Book is a set of four new tours featuring crowd-sourced passages from fiction novels set in the District. Explore DC through fiction brought to life! For more information about DC By The Book, click here.
  • A History of DC Retail: Relive the Downtown Shopping Experience, September 16 and September 18. Native Washingtonian Walter Guzman-Ferrel leads lunchtime and after work tours. Perfect for the downtown crowd!
  • At the Heart of Hip: H Street NE, September 19. Take a stroll with WashingTours and Events' Kate Denson and explore one of DC's up-and-coming neighborhoods, recently experiencing an economic and social revival.
  • Shepherd Parkway: A Ward 8 Wilderness, September 21. Explore one of DC's most unique wooded areas — home to two Bald Eagle nests and the remains of two Civil War forts!

P.S. — Volunteer opportunities are also available.
