Lace up those sneakers, grab a reusable water bottle, and get ready for WalkingTown DC and BikingTown DC from Cultural Tourism DC.

On May 22 and 23, you can explore Washington’s vibrant neighborhoods by foot or bike, following local guides and community leaders as they share historical anecdotes, point out architectural gems, and discuss current issues in neighborhoods from Georgetown and Eastern Market to Columbia Heights and Anacostia.

With more than 100 walking tours and 11 biking tours in all eight wards of the city, this year’s program promises to provide hours of fun, adventure, and good exercise.

If You Build It Green….

This is an article I wrote for The Washington Post back in August 2006 that looks at public green buildings around the area. The good news is that many more have been built in just the year since I wrote the article including the Sidwell Friends middle school, which was completed in September 2006. Know more?
