In the shadow of national monuments and blooming trees, a chorus of camera shutters click while photographers usher once-fleeting moments into eternity. Premier Photo Tours' staff helps foster such experiences, giving shooters skills with which to go after their photographic pursuits. Each a combination of instructor and guide, the company's camera pros lead themed walks around town that teach kids and adults how to frame scenic shots or get a stubborn art sculpture to smile. Deeper instruction comes in the form of Photo Mentor classes for photographers who want to take a more artistic and technically savvy approach in any stage of their photography development. During any of Premier's sessions, snappers have the opportunity to build community with one another around their budding talents, which can be enhanced on group travel excursions to some of the world's most photogenic locales.

There are many different ways to see the sights of Washington D.C., but in a city with so many interesting neighborhoods and architectural details, perhaps the best opportunities for exploration come on foot. Washington Walks takes visitors through the city’s many unique neighborhoods, from hip urban thoroughfares to upscale and historic parts of town, then on to the corridors of power. Get Local Saturdays feature a different region of the city every weekend. The U Street tour covers a neighborhood once known as the “Black Broadway”, due to the number of entertainment venues in the area frequented by the likes of Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington. Many of Washington Walks’ guides are native Washingtonians, actors, semi-professional historians or all of the above.

Forget busing, biking or taking the Metro; in a city with so many interesting neighborhoods and architectural details, perhaps the best way to explore is by foot. Washington Walks guides visitors through the city’s many unique neighborhoods, from hip urban thoroughfares to upscale historic neighborhoods to the corridors of power. Get Local Saturdays feature a different neighborhood every weekend for interested out-of-towners or locals looking to explore their city further. Other regularly scheduled tours include Memorials by Moonlight; a walk along Embassy Row; and explorations of Georgetown or Dupont Circle. Many of the entertaining guides are native Washingtonians, actors, semi-professional historians or all of the above – each tour costs $15 per person.

DC Cruises showcases the capital from an uncommon angle: the waterfront. Sightseeing boats available for private parties ranging from 20 to 100 guests drift on the Potomac from Georgetown to the river basin, taking in views of the Kennedy Center, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, and the Washington Monument. Sunset and happy-hour cruises cast the buildings against colorful skies. At night, the moon glows on the marble structures, giving them new mystique. Wine cruises and crab feasts combine on-the-water sightseeing with local fare, and cherry-blossom cruises showcase signs of spring: trees dotted with pink blooms and newborn bills cooing in their bassinets on the mall.

You don't need a time machine to try Old Town’s famous 125-year-old jelly cake. Today's Groupon—$25 for a DC Metro Food Tour—gets you gobbling jelly pastry and other local specialties on an edible voyage through Eastern Market (a $41 value). This is not an ordinary grub hopscotch tour with undesirably quick stops: over the course of a 90-minute tour, food-fiends and spend 15 to 20 minutes savoring specially designed dishes at four to five restaurants.

Taking it’s cue from the hit television show The Amazing Race, the Gorilla Challenge pits teams of urban scavengers in a two-to-four hour race against time, scouring the city for illuminating clues that lead to valuable cash prizes. Partnering with the Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis, this heart-pounding, madcap puzzledrome fills the home of the Cowboys with amateur sleuths and merry pranksters madly dashing to win cash prizes of $500 for first place, $250 for second place, $100 for third place, and $50 for best costume. The challenge begins when your team receives a clue-filled card outlining 12 of the day's challenges; complete 10 correct challenges and race back to the start to claim your cash bounty or consolation water pick. As proof of challenge completions, teams take photographic evidence along this 3 to 5 mile radius of mystery, as the next challenge could include puzzle solving, musical numbers, making silly-faces, or recreating American Gothic. Special mini prizes line the path, with successful sleuths winning swag such as iPods and gift certificates to local restaurants and retailers. Following the brouhaha, every racer is invited to partake in swinging post-event entertainment, where exhilarated Sherlocks and sun-kissed Watsons bask in the completion of their good deeds and FDA–recommended daily puzzle race requirement with live music and food and drink specials.
