What You'll Do
Some think of Foggy Bottom only as the neighborhood that houses GWU and financial agencies, but architectural historian Bill Lebovich knows that its home to so much more. During a less-than-2-mile stroll from west of the White House through Foggy Bottom, Bill points out the beautiful architecture of buildings forged in the Federal period and a few more contemporary postmodernist designs. The tour will put you in touch with the former and current homes and headquarters of prominent Washingtonians, as well as major educational institutions, museums, clubs, and international government bodies.
