Walking Washington

green-file-1

We weren’t surprised to read that Washington, DC was recently ranked the most walkable urban setting in the nation. This is just further proof of what we at DC Insider Tours have been saying all along: there is no better way to see DC than by foot. But what makes walking this city so enjoyable? A combination of wide, inviting sidewalks pristine landscaping, short buildings that allow sweeping views, relatively flat terrain, and a moderate climate that allows outdoor touring year-round.

The best part about touring the city by foot is the ability to venture all the way up (or into) memorials and monuments. Some of our favorite juicy stories involve aspects of sites that can only be seen on foot. And we want to make sure you see all of them.
