Hey Super Troopers!!!
Fr?hliche Weihnachten, Joyeux No?l, Feliz Navidad, and Merry Christmas! ...I know I broken a few hearts and more than a few rules this year, but other than that, I?ve been such a good, good boy - I hope Santa is good to me this year! I hope Santa is good to you too!
Come walk and celebrate the Christmas season with us in the heart of Washington, DC?s historic Georgetown neighborhood. One of the city's most treasured communities - it?s wonderful sight at the holiday season with its Christmas decorations and shoppers.
We?ll start off at the Theodore Roosevelt Island parking lot and make our way up to Rosslyn, where we?ll cross the Potomac River via the Francis Scott Key Bridge into the Georgetown. We?ll then walk along M Street, which contains high-end shops, bars, and restaurants (if the interest there, we can take a break for coffee, tea, beer, etc?this will give the shopaholics amongst us some time to quickly shop).
From M Street, we?ll sneak down to the C&O Canal and take a short stroll along the canal before heading to the Georgetown Waterfront (where we'll see the neighborhood Christmas tree and for the adventurous walkers, this is where you can do your polar bear plunge - and I'll be plunging in with you!!!). After our skinny dipping and de-thawing, we?ll make our way to the Kennedy Center. We'll then cross the Potomac, via the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Bridge, back into the Commonwealth of Virginia.
The 2.5-mile walk (2 hours) is nearly all flat and a mix of sidewalks, boardwalks, and dirt trails.
Where to meet: We?ll meet at the Theodore Roosevelt Island parking lot off of the George Washington Parkway in Rosslyn.
What to bring: yourself, water, comfy walking shoes, and cool sunglasses. As always, if you have questions, need a ride, going to be late, or just want to say hello, my number is [masked].
See you there!
