Looking for a different tour of Washington, DC? Your host, BrightPath Tours, will take you for a walk along two of the most famous streets in the United States: Constitution Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue. Walk at your own pace, on your own schedule! This tour begins at Constitution Avenue and 22nd Street, at the Einstein Memorial. Along the route, we’ll see some of the rarely-visited, smaller monuments, including Simon Bolivar, the Army Second Division, the Zero-Mile Marker, Boss Shepherd, and Ben Franklin. We’ll walk through historic areas where newsmen and their newspapers thrived, where the lowest rungs of society struggled to establish meager lives, where protestors gathered and met tragic ends over the demand for their War pensions. The tour ends at one of the largest equestrian monuments in the world - and one of the most dramatic monuments on DC’s landscape: The Ulysses S Grant Memorial.
If you have already visited the major memorials and would like to add to your knowledge of Washington, DC, this is the tour for you!
