Full description
Set at a leisurely pace, this guided walking tour includes Georgetown’s most iconic spots. Marvel at historic architecture while you learn about the neighborhood from your guide. Make your way to a centrally located meeting point in Georgetown and meet your guide to start your walking tour. Learn about a series of historic destinations as you walk. First, follow your guide to the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, which connects the Potomac River communities with markets and goods. See the Laird-Dunlop House, Newton D. Baker House, and Lydia English Seminary School for Girls, a boarding school that served the upper class. Hear the story of the Grafton Tyler Double House, pass the Christ Episcopal Church, and see the Hyde-Addison School. Visit the historic Yellow Tavern, also called the White Horse Tavern, then follow Pomander Walk past tiny, pastel row houses. Later, see where Alexander Graham Bell founded Volta Laboratory, and take in a series of academic destinations: Georgetown Preparatory School, Healy Hall, and the University Library. Get a look at campus nightlife at The Tombs, then visit the Car Barn, a renovated streetcar depot.
