Circumnavigate the White House Tour
We will meet at the statue of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Square in front of the White House, take a look at statues of Lafayette and Rochambeau, the White House, the Old Executive Office Building and the 1st Division Memorial. If time permits, we will walk over to the Washington Monument and enjoy the four directions view from the base before we take in the Statue of General Sherman, the Treasury Building (with statues of Hamilton and Gallatin) and conclude our tour where we began.
The most important aspect of a walking tour is the total sensory world that opens when you step into the magnificent open space of the nation’s capital. I may invite you to enjoy some bending, stretching and breathing in order to wake up your sense of wonder at this environment.
There are plenty of good places nearby for food and coffee, as well as sports bars for people who want to look at college football before or afterward.
Notably: Peets Coffee at Pennsylvania and 17th. Big sports bar on L Street east of 17th.
Among other things, we will consider the impact of California on the nation’s capital
