Jack and Jackie in Georgetown – Oct. 25

 3307 N StBefore Camelot came to the White House, Jack and Jackie Kennedy lived in several homes in the fashionable Georgetown district. The 90-minute walk includes homes (exteriors only – they’re still private residences) where John F. Kennedy was a U.S. Congressman and Senator before meeting Jacqueline Bouvier, their honeymoon home where daughter Caroline was raised and two homes where Jackie resided after JFK’s death. Licensed guide shares many large photos of when the Kennedys lived inside at each stop. We’ll also see Martin’s Tavern where Jack proposed. Unlike our other photo tours, this is more for history buffs, though feel free to bring your camera. Tour meets outside 3301 M St NW (Georgetown Cupcake) at 3 p.m.
