Trips & Excursions

September 25 through 29

Politics and Prose invites you to join a small group of like-minded travelers to enjoy one of the loveliest parts of our country. We’ll take a short five-day break from our busy lives to visit the historic and beautiful upper Hudson River Valley. National Geographic Traveler has named it one of the top 20 must-see destinations in the world.

Saturday, October 14, 1 to 4 p.m.

Join author Garrett Peck and P&P on a tour of the sites and relics of Prohibition-era Washington D.C. and explore an in-depth history of the effects of Prohibition. Many unusual sites will be highlighted along the way, which, like many Prohibition-era police officers, most Washingtonians never see.

Saturday, November 4, 8 a.m.
– approximately 8 p.m.

This fall, Politics & Prose invites you to a perennial P&P favorite: the wonder of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural masterpiece, Fallingwater! We are leading a trip to the wooded area of western Pennsylvania where you can enjoy fall foliage and explore the house known worldwide as a feat of architectural achievement.

Saturday, November 11, 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. 

Join Melanie Choukas-Bradley and Susan Austin Roth, the author and photographer of A Year in Rock Creek Park—the Wild, Wooded Heart of Washington, D.C., for a walk under the trees in the Boundary Bridge area of the park, where the group will witness the forest in a blaze of autumn glory, learn to identify trees, and listen for the calls of pileated woodpeckers and belted kingfishers.
