Some think of Foggy Bottom only as the neighborhood that houses GWU and financial agencies, but you will fine out is that it’s home to so much more. During this less-than-2-mile stroll from west of the White House through Foggy Bottom, you’ll get the chance to take in the sights of often overlooked buildings that were forged in the Federal period, and even a few contemporary postmodernist designs as well. You will see former and current homes and headquarters of prominent Washingtonians, as well as major educational institutions, museums, clubs, and international government bodies. The more than two hundred years of architectural, social, and political history expressed through these buildings make for a truly unforgettable experience.
