Free Area Walking Tours Scheduled for September 25-26, 2010

Lincoln Cottage (aka Anderson Cottage)

The semi-annual WalkingTown DC/BikingTown DC tours are currently being scheduled for the weekend of September 25-26 this fall. The tours are free but some may require reservations. The Web site and all the listings are not completely finished yet, but there is enough there to start making plans.

Tours that will be of particular interest to Park View residents include the grounds of the Soldiers’ Home, the Rock Creek Church Cemetery grounds, and a neighborhood tour of Park View.

The tour of the Soldiers’ Home Grounds is currently listed and requires a reservation. There is only one tour, which is scheduled for Saturday morning between 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. The link is up and registration for this tour is currently live and open.

There are several opportunities to tour of the grounds of the Rock Creek Parish Cemetery. If this is a tour you are interested in you’ll want to scan through the days and times to see which one best suits your schedule.

The walking tour of Park View is not yet listed, but will be found in the listings for Sunday morning when that page is posted. The Park View tour was scheduled for 10:00 a.m. the last time I saw the schedule. I should also disclose that I’ll be leading that tour.

Of course, Cultural Tourism DC will be offering tours throughout the city, so if these local suggestions don’t peak your interest, look at the other listings for something that does. It’s a great way to learn more about Washington, and its hard to argue with free.

    Skype has opened up its web-centered customer beta to
    the world, following introducing it largely in the Usa and You.K.
    before this 30 days. Skype for Web also now facilitates Linux and Chromebook
    for immediate messaging connection (no voice and video however, those
    need a plug-in installing).

    The increase of the beta adds help for an extended selection of dialects to help you reinforce that global usability
