With so many projects now really moving forward, I'm thinking that it might be fun to lead a walking tour of Near Southeast
, if there's any interest. I've done a couple before for Nationals fans, but would open it up this time to anyone who wants to come along and doesn't mind a lot of walking through construction dust.
I'm aiming for around
11:0010:30 am on Sunday, September 9
, doing the loop around the stadium
and up the "new" South Capitol Street
, and past the various buildings under construction north of M Street
, and maybe into The Yards
and toward Capitol Quarter
. In other words, be prepared to hike a pretty fair distance--I imagine it might take about two hours to do the whole thing.
But first I need to gauge whether there's enough people interested, so if you think you'd want to do something like this, let me know
by sending a quick note via my contact form
. I'll make an official "go/no-go" announcement soon, depending on whether there appears to be critical mass or not.
UPDATE: I'm being reminded that Sept. 9 is opening day for the Redskins, at FedEx field at 1 pm. So I'm shifting the idea back a half-hour to a 10:30 start time; and of course, if people need to peel away earlier than that, that's fine.
UPDATE, 8/21: Just like that, I officially made the tour a "go," and it filled up. If you missed out this time, sorry!
