Night Tour of D.C. & Its African American History

Explore the city at night and learn about the African American history that shaped it. The tour begins at the Navy Memorial, 7th and Pennsylvania Ave NW. Our first stop is dinner at the soul food restaurant Ooohs and Aahs in northwest Washington, D.C. You pre-order your food from a set menu so it’s ready when we arrive at the restaurant.

After dinner, we tour some of the historic African American neighborhoods such as Shaw, Ledroit Park, and Black Broadway. We drive past the Carter G. Woodson Home, Mary M. Bethune home, Phyllis Wheatly YWCA, and African American Civil War Memorial. The tour is narrated by a native Washingtonian with 25 years of experience.

At the end of the tour, we bring you back to 401 F. street and give you tickets to the Museum of African American History and Culture to explore on your own.
