Our Nation's Capital walks

A couple of weeks ago I posted a Washington DC "National Mall" Monuments walking tours. Here's a follow up andsuggestions for more DC walking opportunities.

The Nation's Capital is regularly singled out as one of the nation's most walkable cities, and just about every avenue, street, and alleyway has a story to tell. Whether you're into history or greenery, jazz or espionage, pound the pavement to get the goods on where it all happened and what's happening now.

Like to go at your own pace? Try a Cultural Tourism DC Neighborhood Heritage Trail, one of a system of self-guided walking routes marked with illustrated signs that tell stories of Washington's historic neighborhoods. Neighborhood Heritage Trails are the Official Walking Trails of Washington, DC.

If guided tours are more your style, walk with Cultural Tourism DC member guides. Or if you prefer, you can travel by bike or bus. Scooters, wheelchairs, and bikes are also available for rent should you decide to explore the city on wheels.
