Was ihr unternehmen werdet
We'll begin our tour in the heart of historic Washington, and imagine a time when the beautiful old buildings here were new. We'll hear the curious story of the architect of America's capital, then stroll to the National Mall, where more than 200 years of history unfolds right in front of us... truly an awesome place (especially around sunset)! To expedite things a little, and save some wear and tear on our feet, we'll take a short bus hop to the Tidal Basin for the best part of the walk. Endless photo opps lead us along the shoreline and tree-lined pathways past all the great memorials and monuments, each with their own unique stories, from quirky to serious. We go at an easy pace and linger where time allows, before ending the tour near Lincoln Memorial or Washington Monument. You can hail a taxi or rideshare there, or if you prefer, I can walk you to a Metro station or back to the Navy Memorial and Old Downtown, where many great restaurants and coffee shops await.
As a guidebook author, tour guide, and enthusiastic traveler myself, I thrive on showing visitors around the best of Washington, D.C., including hidden gems, experiences, and perspectives that can be difficult to find on your own. My latest guidebook, A National Jaunt: Footster's Guide to Washington, D.C., earned a national excellence award in 2017. I have a professional background in environmental planning and outdoor recreation, including trail and bikeway design. And I'm a national parks junkie and volunteer. I currently live near Old Town Alexandria with Kris and our cat-child, Fuji.
