ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
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.
Go beyond the monuments and memorials to discover the most fascinating aspects of Washington’s rich history and dynamic culture. Learn about the gargoyles perched on the Washington National Cathedral, walk in the footsteps of Lincoln and his assassin at Ford's Theatre, and hear tales of D.C.'s most notable and eccentric residents as you wind through the mansions and foreign embassies of Georgetown.


Highlights

• Discover the iconography of the nation’s most treasured monuments, and delve deep into the history of the United States Capitol as you explore the Capitol Rotunda, Statuary Hall and Crypt.
• Go behind the scenes at the Kennedy Center, learn about the many extraordinary gifts from the governments of more than 60 countries that make this a truly an international destination.
• From counterintelligence to Masonic symbolism, uncover D.C.’s clandestine side with local experts.

Activity Notes

Walking two miles daily, some standing and uneven surfaces.
