What we're about

Welcome to the Washington DC International Adventure Travel Club! Simply put, this group is for people who want to make friends and travel the world. The group tries to Meetup locally in the Washington DC area to bring adventurous people together to talk about where we’ve been and where we dream of going… with the ultimate goal of traveling to amazing and adventurous places around the world with a group of other liked-minded people (see our events). As much as we are looking to find other adventurous people to travel with, we love getting together face to face with members from our community to visit local restaurants, grab a social drink together in one of the local bars or maybe even a hike or a walk at a local park. So come join us and live the adventurous life you’ve always dreamed of.
