What You’ll Do

From the White House to the Lincoln Memorial, our nation’s capital brims with iconic sights—but some of D.C.’s most interesting monuments rarely show up on postcards. Using a combination of public transit and taxis, native Washingtonian Elizabeth Rosendorf leads you on a trek to D.C.’s lesser-known historical destinations, including the African American Civil War Memorial on Vermont Street and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial at the Judiciary Square Metro. Each stop includes ample time for pictures (including some goofy shots) and discussion of the monument’s historical significance.

  • Tour Washington’s Hidden Monuments
    You’ll explore the lesser-known history of the DC War Memorial, the Vietnam Women’s Memorial, and other sites.

  • Your Photographic Assignment
    At the beginning of the tour, Elizabeth will hand you a photo outlining a feature from one of the monuments; you’ll take a selfie with that same feature during the tour to share with other tour-goers at the end.

  • Island Exploration
    The final tour stop is the Theodore Roosevelt Island, where guests can explore, take a snack break, and drink in great city views. The group then walks back across the bridge and takes taxis back to the National Mall.
