What we’ll do

Venture into some of Washington's most diverse residential areas in this off the beaten path tour of the Columbia Heights and Adams Morgan neighborhoods. From DC socialites to civil rights activists, Northwest Washington has been host to castles, embassies, temples, protests, and almost the Lincoln Memorial! Learn about this diverse and ever-changing off the beaten path area of the real District.

Where you'll be

Our tour begins in Meridian Hill Park, one of Washington’s best urban oases. We’ll uncover little known memorials, wind through back paths, and discuss the visionary woman who envisioned a diplomatic paradise in the heights of Washington. Then up 16th Street, the “spine” of the District, before heading into charming Lanier Heights, and finally down to the heart of Adams Morgan.
