20th Anniversary Walkabout Part II
Come along on a two-part walking tour that travels across the District of Columbia, stopping at sites that have been featured on Washington Walks tours for the past two decades. How have these places changed in the past twenty years and how are those changes emblematic of the often dramatic transformation that has occurred in Washington, D.C. since 1999? Which spots continue to define what is cherished about living in D.C. and remain unaltered since first encountered twenty years ago? The Walkabout will be led by Washington Walks founder Carolyn Crouch and guides Bree, Cheryl, David, Mary Anne, Meg, Paul, Phoebe, Polly, and Victoria. It’s guaranteed to be a day filled with remembrances, reflection, and the kind of unbridled enthusiasm for our nation’s capital hometown that only a walking tour can inspire.
