Washington, D.C. audio tour: The Kennedy Homes of Georgetown

About the Tour

Stroll the path of Camelot's early days, when a beautiful young journalist met a rising politician and wartime hero who later became the U.S. president. See the many homes where John F. Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy resided, Martin's Tavern where they got engaged, their church Holy Trinity, and Jackie's home after the president's death. We'll also see colonial architecture reminiscent of England, in a neighborhood just steps away from shopping and night spots.

I'm a native Washingtonian who's a lifelong journalist and third-generation tour guide. And oh, I'm related to Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth and co-conspirator Mary Surratt. You'll hear the inside stories when touring Washington with me. Besides the Lincoln assassination, my tours include Lafayette Park by the White House and the Kennedy homes in Georgetown plus Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, my favorite place in the world.

tried this tour today and enjoyed it. Very nice one detailing the Kennedy's residents in the historical Georgetown area. It's the right amount of walking in a really beautiful neighborhood, and the Kennedy's story just thread it all together.
