If you've already seen the monuments, this easy walking tour will add to your appreciation of the history of Washington, DC. You can tour on your own schedule and walk at your own pace as you let your host, BrightPath Tours, take you on a tour of the President's Neighborhood and LaFayette Park. Starting at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building and walking along the streets that face LaFayette Park, you'll see some of the earliest formal residences built in Washington, DC, and you'll hear about the people who lived in the houses - the famous, the infamous and the notorious!
You'll also walk through the park, stopping at each of the statues that have resided there for over 100 years. We'll end our walking tour directly in front of the most famous house in the President's Neighborhood and the most famous house in the United States: the White House. This area has seen men - and women - of influence who have helped shape our country as they socialized, connived, partied, debated, argued, and legislated our country into existence. For such a small space, there's a lot of history here!
