ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
In “The Lost Symbol,” author Dan Brown sets symbologist Robert Langdon off on a frenzied mission to unlock and interpret the secrets held by the nation’s capital. Discover the sites in the novel for yourself, learning the stories and in some cases mysteries behind landmarks both famous and unfamiliar: National Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol, the Library of Congress, Freedom Plaza and more.


Highlights

• Review Pierre Charles L’Enfant’s “plan of the city intended for the permanent seat of the government of the United States” and learn how Washington, D.C. came into existence.
• Delve into the history of the Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
• Discover the House of the Temple and the George Washington Masonic Memorial.

Activity Notes

Standing and walking 4-6 hours per day up to two miles per day.
