What we're about
Join the fun, relaxed and informative explorations and walks in the city of Washington, DC . The walks are generally fast and strenuous. Participants can drop out of the walk at anytime. To be a member of this group your profile picture must be of a person, and that picture should resemble you. Set your profile picture specifically for this group here (https://www.meetup.com/DC-City-Walkers-Group/profile/).
This is a group for anyone who is interested in exploring the city (when and where possible) of Washington, DC while walking. The walks are usually more than 8 miles (12.9 km), and several hours long, but of course there is absolutely no obligation to finish the entire walks. The walks always start and finish at metro stations, so there's no need for you to drive. However, the starting point may not be the same as the end point.
The walks are predominantly focused on enjoying the city of Washington, DC, its history, diverse architecture, street art, statues, gardens, parks, cafes, distilleries, breweries, beer gardens, brew pubs (https://goo.gl/oA58X6), bookstores, bantering, and enjoying our socializing. Exercising is an added benefit :-). Checkout the photos from our walks http://goo.gl/VntEhr
Before asking questions I kindly ask you to please familiarize yourself with http://bit.ly/2cZx3E3 in its entirety.

Please take this survey http://goo.gl/forms/QeWDawhzjV in order to better tailor the walks. Also please don't hesitate to ask for help and directions. We are here to have fun.
Wear very comfortable athletic/hiking shoes and loose fitting clothing, and do bring water and snacks. It's highly recommended that you have a large hearty breakfast before the walk. Also do install the meetup.com app on your phone such that we can communicate during our walks, if needed.
