Eastern Market to the National Archives

For this Meetup I have planned something a bit different. Instead of starting and finishing at the same Metro Station we will start at one Metro Station and finish at another. We will start at Market Park and walk North on 8th Street past Eastern Market to Independence Ave. We will then head west on Independence toward Capitol Hill. When we get to first street we will head North past the Library of Congress, the Capitol and the Supreme Court. When we get to Constitution Ave we will head west to Pennsylvania Ave and follow Pennsylvania Ave to the National Archives and Navy Memorial. As planned this is a 2 mile walk and should take about 45 minutes, if we weren't making photos so plan on it taking about 1.5 hours.

    Hey guys I'm new to the group. 24 year old having recently moved to the area. I was wondering where's the exact meeting point so I don't miss you guys... I work until 530 so hoping to make it on time. Would love to join. Thanks.

      We are meeting right outside the Metro station at Market Park.

    • Vish

      Thanks. Hopefully I can get done with work by 530. And head there directly. It'd take me 45 mins to commute.

    It's a sad day today. There was a mass shooting at the Navy Yard today. For whatever it is worth to you, I would guess there would be additional security and restrictions around any DC government building tomorrow. You may want to be prepared for that.

    September 16, 2013

    • Vincent K.

      Yes, a sad day. We will be walking the opposite direction from the Navy Yard. While there is a possibility that there might be extra security I do not anticipate any problems. I'm looking forward to a nice evening!
