You’ve seen the major sites in Washington, DC — the Capitol Building, the Smithsonian Museums and the thought-provoking memorials — but did you ever wonder about the people who built this great city? This is a foodie walking tour of H Street, the neighborhood that housed the builders and artisans who built the city and made it come to life.
You’ll kick off the tour with a delicious snack from a local grocery store and a sip of a very special drink that has helped the beverage industry in DC skyrocket in recent years.
You’ll continue to make a loop around the H Street Corridor, visiting restaurants, markets, churches and historic sites. Your foodie stops will vary depending on what is available that day but you can look forward to freshly baked local bread, popular sweet treats from an outstanding local bakery (like mom used to make!) and a slice of the capital’s best pizza.
Along the way, you’ll hear some amazing stories about the people who used to live and work in this district, learn how food has played a big part in bringing the community together and taste for yourself why DC’s food scene is enjoying a much-deserved resurgence.
