Trips & Excursions

Saturday, July 20, 10:00 a.m. to Noon - NOTE: we are rescheduling this walking tour to September 21, 10:00 a.m. to Noon

 

Jazz and Prohibition collided in 1920s Washington, and one neighborhood saw it all. We will explore Shaw neighborhood, home to U Street and Washington’s “Black Broadway,” and visit historical and unusual sites that most Washingtonians never see. Led by author Garrett Peck, the walk will be capped by a prohibition-appropriate happy hour, of course.

September 18 through 25, 2019

Next September, join P&P and a group of like-minded travelers in exploring the castles, estates, and gardens in the Southeast of England. We’ll be touring famed gardens and historic towns, as well as several sites overseen by the National Trust, which is a charitable organization with a mission to protect many of Britain’s most culturally and historically important landmarks. Our base will be the popular Georgian spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells in Kent, which has been an attraction for visitors since a mineral water spring was discovered here more than 400 years ago, bringing royal visitors looking for eternal health.
