Full description

The U Street neighborhood tour begins at Ben's Chili Bowl, directly across from the U Street metro. From there visit the other stops during a 3-hour long leisurely walking tour, that covers approximately 2 miles. During your tour, you will learn about several significant buildings and check out street art and murals that contribute to the story of U St. In addition to the stops at multiple restaurants, where you will enjoy a variety of carefully selected tastings, you will explore the history of the neighborhood. Stay for approximately 20 minutes at each stop and enjoy brief walks in-between. The tour will end close to the Shaw Metro stop at approximately 2:30 PM. A portion of each ticket is donated to Bread for the City, a charity that provides services to DC locals including providing food, clothing, and legal and medical services.
