We will visit Washington's last Pre-Revolutionary Colonial building on its original foundation.

There is a reason Mercedes Benz chose N Street in Georgetown for one of its commercials. We will take in this historical streets 19th and early 20th century homes and enjoy the stories behind each. We will walk the quaint streets of Georgetown to visit other "famous" homes, including some of the those inhabited by the community's most famous residents, John & Jackie Kennedy.

Another stop will include an 18th century cemetery where slaves were held on the Underground Railroad.
