Sunday Night Full Moon Walk: National Mall Monuments & Memorials!

August 26 @ 6:45 pm - 9:15 pm

Free

Washington DC’s monuments and memorials on the National Mall are spectacular in the evening, and even more so during a full moon. Since the August 26 full moon falls on a Sunday it’s a good time for an evening walk with familiar and new friends from our “Washington, DC History & Culture” group. Come join us as we always have well over 100 people and our record is approximately 650 people.

Our walk will start and end at the National World War II Memorial and cover approximately 3 miles past Washington DC’s most famous monuments and memorials.

Meet New People: We’ll have a good-sized group and it’s hard to remember people’s names. Therefore, we’ll bring blank name tags and pens and each person can write their name and their “dream” vacation – example: “Michele – Hawaii” & “Robert – Japan.” During our walk we can then discuss our past and future travels.
