Happy Birthday John Kennedy!


John F. Kennedy's 100th birthday is May 29, 2017.

Step into 1946 Georgetown as we walk the beautiful streets where John F. Kennedy lived when he served in the House and the Senate. We'll see the home where Jack initially proposed to Jackie Bouvier. One highlight of the tour is a visit to the park where Jack and his brother Bobby played touch football. We'll talk about Jack's career in the House, Senate and his rise to the presidency.

As we stroll through Georgetown, we'll discover the changes it went through because of the arrival of the Kennedy's. We'll visit the homes they lived in, learn about the Kennedy's friends in the neighborhood and talk about the neighbor's recollections of the family. We'll visit the last church that Jack attended before being assassinated. The walking tour will end with a stop at an unexpected Georgetown landmark.

Depending on the day and time of the tour, you'll have the option of having a meal in the historic restaurant where Jackie accepted Jack's marriage proposal.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was a wonderful tour and beyond what we were hoping for. Susan was prompt, friendly, incredibly knowledable, and made the entire time go by so quickly. We couldn't have asked for a better experience during our trip to DC. We plan to contact her again the next time we are in town!
