WalkingTown DC is the area’s best public tour program, and it offers more than 50 different guided walking tours throughout various neighborhoods. The widespread event takes place for eight days every September, and the various tours introduce guests to a variety of local art, culture, and history. Local eats can be enjoyed during lunchtime tours, and drinks during the after-work happy-hour tours. During the weekend, longer, more comprehensive walkabouts will be on hand. With so much to take in and learn, this period of time is ideal for first-time DC visitors to hit the streets and take in all there is to offer.
