If you're looking for a different tour of Washington, DC, here it is! Your host, BrightPath Tours, will take you for a walk along one of the most famous streets in the United States, Pennsylvania Avenue. Walk at your own pace, on your own schedule!
This tour begins in the Ellipse, right in front of the South Lawn of the White House. After we leave the Ellipse, we'll walk along Pennsylvania Avenue where we’ll see some of the rarely-visited, smaller monuments including Boss Shepherd, Ben Franklin, and the Peace Memorial. We'll walk through historic areas where newsmen and their newspapers thrived, where the lowest rungs of society struggled to establish meager lives, where protestors gathered and met tragic ends over the demand for their War pensions. The tour ends at one of the largest equestrian monuments in the world - and one of the most dramatic monuments on DC's landscape: The Ulysses S Grant Memorial.
This walk is perfect for those who have already visited the major memorials and would like to add to their knowledge of Washington, DC!
