Things to Do

Our Pick for the Weekend: Walk the City

Get to know your city a little bit better with one or more of the free WalkingTown tours that take place today and Sunday. The organization hosts more than 60 guided walking and biking tours through various neighborhoods in the city—all free. Want to know more about the musical heritage of U Street? Ever wondered about the monastery in Brookland? What about espionage in Georgetown, or Logan Circle, the “city’s only unaltered Victorian residential district”? Here’s you chance! And here’s a list of free tours.

The free walking tours are just one of our picks for events happening around town this weekend. For even more fun times and entertainment, including FilmFestDC, Tim Gunn reading from his book, and a fashion and dance party, check out Where & When Weekend, our regular column on the best of what's going on this weekend.
