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.

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.

United Social Sports brings recreational athletes together to socialize and showcase their hand-eye coordination. Free agents or team-sized groups register for the organization’s casual coed leagues dedicated to traditional sports such as softball and volleyball as well as carnival games such as cornhole and skee-ball. Each league hosts 6–8 weekly matches, which culminate in a final tournament and an end-of-season party—much like youth-sports leagues, but with postgame drink specials.

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.

Q&A with the Owner

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?

Several years as I traveled all over the U.S. I found myself always asking where the best places to eat are. It was then I decided that I would provide a place not only to showcase where to go to eat but also create an alternative dining experience instead of the hum drum of dining out as usual.

I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?

Bring your adventurous spirit and appetite. We will sample a variety of items that you may not have eaten before. Also, don't be shy. This is a shared dining experience where food is served family style.

As the old adage says, "Stuff happens." What training do you and your staff have to stay ahead of the unexpected?

Guides go through a rigorous process of selection and training to lead any of our tours.
