Live streaming tour from the streets of Washington, DC


The Nation's Capital is a planned city. From its initial concept in the U. S. Constitution to the land reclamation of the early 20th century, every aspect of Washington, DC was intentionally designed. Learn why Pennsylvania Avenue is tree lined, why the Federal Triangle was once called "Murder Bay", and why in the late 1800's it would have been impossible for the Lincoln Memorial to exist. This is a live virtual tour delivered personally and live by me using live video conferencing software.

Itinerary

This 45 minute to 1 hour tour will start on Capitol Hill and begin our trek past one of the major features of L'Enfant's 1792 plan. Here are our travel points:

A Recent Review of this tour

Wonderful way to become acquainted with Washington, DC. Talked about the history and development of the city of Washington, pointed out the various well known landmarks and what they represented. Very knowledgeable and responsive to my comments and questions. A fun experience, left me wanting to visit or, at least, do some research!
