Stop At: Washington DC Urban Adventures

You’ve seen the major sites in Washington DC — the Capitol Building, the Smithsonian Museums and the thought-provoking memorials — but did you ever wonder about the people who built this great city? Join us on a foodie tour of H Street, the neighborhood that housed the builders and artisans who built the city and made it come to life. After introducing ourselves at the meeting point, we kick off the tour with a delicious snack from a local grocery store. Then we head to a cafe with freshly roasted, in-house coffee, where we may even meet the unofficial “Mayor of H St!”
