About the Tour

D.C.’s gardens hold a secret that your guide is determined to figure out. Join her for the third installment of this fictional walk series beginning near the Spirit of Justice Park and taking you to the U.S. Botanic Garden.

Her research into the mysterious phenomenon in the gardens has given her few answers, but plenty of new questions. Her experiences at the Summerhouse only complicated matters. She suspects the involvement of certain men in gray suits, and her investigation is about to take a riskier turn.

Find out where her need for answers takes her as she leads you through three different parks to the Water Garden.
