    This looks like a really cool tour, and I’d love to go, but I’m out of town this weekend. Are there any tours scheduled for some later date?

    Walkingtown is twice per year. First in May then again in September. The MVTCID always participates.

    @Billy Mitchell – A few of the WalkingtownDC tours require reservations. The MVT development tour does not. It’s also free. Just show up on the southside steps of the Carnegie Library (801 K Street NW) by 2pm on either Saturday or Sunday.
