Saturday and Sunday, April 22 & 23
WalkingTown, DC – Spring Edition
A weekend of 50 walking tours city wide without charge

WalkingTown, DC is an annual invitation to enjoy Washington’s neighborhoods at their springtime best
The weekend features guided walking tours in neighborhoods across DC as well as a few bike and boat tours

Featured tours

Metro: Behind the Scenes with Interim General Manager Dan Tangherlini
Saturday, April 22, 9:00 – 10:30am
Meet at the Metro Center Metro station (13th Street exit)
On Metro’s 30th Anniversary learn about the system’s history, hear some of the stories behind the stops and some little-known facts, and find out what to expect next while you spend a few hours wandering underground learning about the region’s transportation network

Penn Quarter (Downtown)
Sunday, April 23, 11:00am – 1:00pm
Meet outside the Archives-Navy Mem’l-Penn Quarter Metro station
The 19th and 21st centuries meet in Penn Quarter. Hip hotels, restaurants, and loft apartments are sprouting up amidst attractions like the International Spy Museum, Shakespeare, Ford’s, and Woolly Mammoth theatres, and National Building Museum. Many of these are housed in buildings from the 1800’s, others are next store to them or their facades, which makes this walk an irresistible urban scavenger hunt to a bygone era – a time when Chinese, German, and Italian immigrants lived and worked on and around Seventh Street.

Only bike tours require advance reservation
