Interested in the inner workings of the United States government? Learn how US politics works (or not) on this three-hour Washington DC City Tour focusing on the political process and insider intrigue, led by a local historian or journalist. Together, we'll walk down Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House to the Capitol, visiting places along the way significant to all three branches of government, including the Senate Buildings and Supreme Court. We'll also visit the lead-lined vaults of the National Archives and the Federal Trade Commission, the latter standing as a testament to consumer rights for some and the beginning of “big government” for others. Along the way, our guide will discuss key people, places, and events while considering the ways that Washington’s political, intellectual, and architectural landscapes have evolved over the last 200 years.
