Full description
Experience the best travel stories for yourself! Join a local expert and uncover hidden gems on this Lonely Planet Experience.

You’ve seen the major sites in Washington DC — the Capitol Building, the Smithsonian Museums and the thought-provoking memorials — but did you ever wonder about the people who built this great city? Join this foodie tour of H Street, the neighborhood that housed the builders and artisans who built the city and made it come to life. After a introduction at the meeting point, you’ll kick off the tour with a delicious snack from a local grocery store and a sip of a special drink that has helped the beverage industry in DC skyrocket in recent years. 

You will continue to make a loop around the H Street corridor, visiting restaurants, markets, churches and historic sites. The foodie stops will vary depending on what is available on the day but you will be promised a culinary roller coaster ride that may include freshly baked local bread, popular sweet treats from an outstanding local bakery (like mom used to make) and a slice of the capital’s best pizza. 

Along the way, you’ll hear some amazing stories about the people who used to live and work in this district, learn how food has played a big part in bringing the community together and taste for yourself why DC’s food scene is enjoying a much deserved resurgence. After you have been filled up with some of the best food in the city, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more hints and tips on how to get the most from your stay in Washington DC.
