Make your way to a centrally located point in Georgetown, where you’ll meet up with a guide and small group for your 10am walking tour. Set a leisurely pace through the city—plan to do about 2 miles (3.2 km.) of walking during the 2-hour tour. Follow your guide to the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal, which connected Potomac River communities with markets and goods, and learn about a series of historic destinations as you walk: see the Laird-Dunlop House, the Newton D. Baker House, and the 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. Take a look at the historic Yellow Tavern, also called the White Horse Tavern, then follow Pomander Walk past tiny, pastel-hued row houses.

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. Continue to the Francis Scott Key Memorial, Cady’s Alley, and the Georgetown Waterfront, where this tour concludes.
