Washington, DC, is ripe with history, and Go-DC Tours’ buses comb the streets to find every bit of it on their city-spanning tours. The tours, which can last three to eight hours, follow the scent of varied topics, from hunting the trails of the many memorials and their makers to exploring military history. The local excursions, though shorter, delve more deeply into the history of some of the DC area’s famed locales, such as Georgetown and Old Town Alexandria. As the air cools and fall turns the leaves, tour guides lead seasonally themed outings such as the Halloween Ghost Tour, which chills guests with the more gruesome tidbits of the city’s story, including the grisly evening when Lincoln’s ghost tried in vain to tip over the Washington Monument.
